This e-mail is a solicitation of an offer to do work on GnuCash in exchange
In some countries (incl. USA), you need to keep records proving the existence
of various transactions for tax purposes; for example, if you take a client
out to lunch, you need a receipt that shows you actually went to a restaurant
on that date. At present, there is no way to track these receipts
electronically in GnuCash; I'd like such a feature.
From my perspective, the most effective way to do this would be to provide a
facility to attach files to transactions (or even to splits) via a
drag-and-drop interface. Drag-and-drop data comes with a MIME type, so you
can just store it as a binary object. If the drag-and-drop metaphor is used,
it should be possible to drag object outs of gnucash transactions, or to
double-click them (presumably for execution by the desktop manager).
Proposals or commentary are welcome; if you're interested in doing this work,
please let me know your preferred approach, credentials, and how much
compensation you'd expect.
