Topic: License compatiblity for CoA from other ERP
I needed a German chart of accounts and what I found was quite outdated.
So I decided to create a new one and am currently converting a German CoA from another open-source ERP to Frontaccounting. I basically did the following:
- installed CoA (under LGPL) in other ERP
- exported database table holding accounts
- did A LOT of editing (most work was matching and editing chart classes)
Maybe somebody here knows if the a.m. procedure is OK from legal point of view? AFAIK LGPL and GPL should be compatible, but I don't know, if that is important anyways, because I did not adjust the scripts under LGPL, but the results of the scripts...
In addition, I have some knowledge on accounting, but am (only) a software developer, so I would appreciate if somebody could check my work ;-)
Thanks in advance.
