How does it work?


Project/
Open

is

based on the OpenACS

community system

(AOLServer, Oracle 8i)


An extensible GPLed

“core
-
module” contains

permissions etc.


Many standard modules around the “Core” are
already available with GPL or free


Additional business
-
modules can be GPLed or
proprietary (make it more attractive to IT
consulting companies)
