its present state it's intentionally void of heavy graphic images and "creature features"
to maximize flexibility in developing future versions.  CogBilling is intended to be useful
for any professional services organization, but ultimately should function especially well
in organizations that do software development, legal services and the like.  Furthermore,
CogBilling is intended to be integrated into large IT infrastructures such as those found
in healthcare institutions, clinics and physician practices.

 Once we can sustain continuous development of the application through the sale of services
and website hosting we will release the whole thing under a traditional open source license
(e.g. Gnu, BSD, etc . . .).  At the present, we expect this to occur in the spring or summer
of 2004.

Apache web server.

the system's basic functionality works.

at the database level, integration with GnoTime, and integration with Issue Tracker.
