KFM website created

A lot of discussion was had today about open source projects, both on the ILUG mailing list, and the #linux IRC channel.

I concentrated mostly on the questions that centred around my KFM project. Kevin Lyda had a lot of very good input.

KFM, at the moment, is open source. I have written it completely in my spare time, and, while my company has a certain claim over code that I write on this computer (which they provided to me), using this broadband connection (which they pay for), they are happy to let me have my fun for at least a few months, before we decide to use the KFM for an in-house project, at which time, I will probably not have the time to work on it externally as well.

So, in light of that, I am calling on all web developers out there to start using it NOW. Use it, comment on it, help to debug and improve it.

The more that the KFM is developed by other people, the more apparent it will become that, in order for the project to retain absolute top quality, it should remain open source.

After all, I am only one person, and I tend not to notice minor bugs if I can work around them! The project needs a lot of people looking at it. After all, “given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow”.

So, without further ado, I present kfm.verens.com.
