New Life for PicoWMS

Hope is not lost! Due to situations beyond my control, I have been MIA for a long time. I am working with an associate who will be able to re-start this project, and, if all goes as planned, he'll be here soon! Thanks for waiting.

RFC-01 Is Available

In order to get things moving in a better manner, I have submitted RFC-01, a Request for your Comments, based on the design I have in mind. This is available in the Documentation area, and should also show up in the Files area. Let me know if you have problems, and I'll email it to you. It is a Text file. Let me know if you would prefer (allow) Adobe file (PDF) as an alternative, for adding drawings, etc.

Welcome to OpenWMS

Welcome to the OpenWMS project. Our goal is to create an open source warehouse management package for use by the general public. We are looking for people to help, including:
- Developers
- Users (warehouse operators or managers, etc.)
- Documentation generators
- Those with experience in MySQL, Apache, Zope, Perl, PhP, and other related tools that might be willing to help.
