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. A debian package already exists on the download page of the website:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ledger-smb/deb-prereq-1.2.8.tar.gz?modtime=1190837927&big_mirror=0

I respectfully submit that this package deserves to be included in the universe repository even more than it parent does.

Thank you.
