[needs-packaging] ledgersmb get added to the repositories
The universe/web repository includes sql-ledger. ledgersmb is a fork of this project which was initially formed to address some security issues that the primary developer of sql-ledger was ignoring.
The leader of the sql-ledger project has also demonstrated a lack of understanding of FOSS. Earlier this year, he attempted to change the license of his project retroactively from the GPL to a license that he wrote. Worse still, he did so without notifying other contributors or end users. One history of the incident can be read on Slashdot:
ledgersmb has gained a great deal of momentum. It is currently ranked 376th on SourceForge.
Debian packages exist on the download page of the website (1.3.9 as of Jan-2012):
As noted in comment #11, packages for 1.3 are also available here:
I respectfully submit that this package deserves to be included in the universe repository even more than it parent does.
