Open For Business merges with Jaguar

The Jaguar e-Business Suite project was started soon after the Open For Business project when Andy Zeneski had almost the same idea I had for an open source project. Initially it looked like we were going in different directions, but we have resolved the differences and united our efforts to make the combined project more effective and useful than either could have been alone.

Jaguar also has a SourceForge project site under the project name 'jag' (see ). We chose to use the ofbiz site instead of the jag site for a number of reasons, but it was a somewhat arbitrary decision.

In this move Andy Zeneski and David E. Jones become the co-founders of the Open For Business Project.

This announcement comes as a pre-cursor to a major release that will represent the first of the newly reorganized Open For Business Project. Keep an eye open for that...

I am excited about this combined effort and the grand future potential of this project. Our hope going forward is that everyone involved in the project will benefit from that involvement and that we will be able to smooth some of the existing rough edges of business software and make working on it more enjoyable for all of us.
