I must say that packaging GNUKhata for Desktop was not some thing any of
us were experienced, but after this long discussion similar to ones in
parliment, at least now we have some one to help in that.  Kartik might
not have chattered a lot on this thread (not that he did not respond),
but he came forward to maintain our deb packages.  He already started to
work on that.  Thanks Kartik.
Making it also work like a web app will lessen that problem a bit
because we will have to maintain just one deb package, or even have just
one script to do the entire setup process and for those who hait command
line or feel bash is a game of geeks, I am refering to a installer
script that can be clicked and run (as if typing GK-Setup is any
difficult ).

Nice point JTD, thanks for contributing this marketing idea.

Yes, we are already looking at such a solution.  Let's find out which
erp talks xmlrpc.

Sorry for excluding your name.
I know you are a jolli good fellow and would not hang me for that :)
