The Maestro project has been re-scoped as a data set for demonstrating and testing ERP and ERP-like applications. The current implementation target for Maestro is OpenERP, and development of a Maestro standalone application based on the Yii PHP framework has been temporarily suspended.
This decision was based on the amount of work still needed to achieve a minimum viable feature set developing from scratch, and the opportunities that become possible by building on OpenERP. I want to sincerely thank Maestro contributors Serge and Mark for their excellent work, and for helping me better understand the challenges of developing a Maestro application from scratch.
When I come up for air, I’ll post more on my experiences sp far with OpenERP, but I can tell you now I’m excited!
