GnuCash is an Open Source Financial Application that provides Personal and Business Accounting. Some would say that GnuCash is a Quicken or Quickbooks replacement, but that's not completely accurate. We're a loose group of developers run mostly like a meritocracy. Patches are welcome from anyone, but commit access to the mainline sources are limited to the core developers. New developers are asked to prove themselves either by sending in patches or by working on a development branch. Most of our conversations take place either in IRC or on the mailing lists.
