DemoWave is a Web application for conducting referendums that allows anyone to propose a new referendum, minimizes the negative effects of people "spamming" the system with bogus referendums, and makes referendums where people disagree a lot take longer to go through. In addition, it can manage a set of laws and referendums on changes to those laws. DemoWave is intended for democratic organizations that need to decrease the bureaucratic load and increase the participation of their members in the decision-making process.
Webwidgets is a framework for writing Web applications as if they were desktop applications. It employs the same programming paradigm as GTK, Qt, etc. with a tree of widgets with callbacks for events such as a button press. It encapsulates page loads, session data, form handling, etc. into widgets with their own state. Webwidgets is focused on code reuse, rapid prototyping, and separation between graphic design, interaction design, and application logic. It is implemented in Python and uses the Webware application server framework.
Lumbricidae WORM (Widget Object Relational Mapper) is an SQLAlchemy binding for Webwidgets. SQLAlchemy presents database tables and rows as Python classes and objects. Webwidgets is a framework for writing Web applications as if they were desktop applications.

Re: Enterprise Grade Software
Hehe, take a look at what D. Knuth says about TeX
:) There you have your guarantees. But that is old
and proven software - he knew very few bugs had
been found lately when he put that price up...
Most softwarre is pretty new and haven't had the
time to maturre enough. Perheaps if people stopped
wanting new features we could get some really good
s/w. Think of cars; how much new featurres have
you seen lately (and not car stereo enhancements,
but real features of the car itself)? How many
bug-fixes and security updates? I would say
allmost no new features, but a hell lot of
bug-fixes and security add-ons.
Re: So what countries are "sane"?
Unfourtunately, it isn't anywhere near gratis to
host something there. So hosting Free
Software/Open Source Software there is more or
less out of the question.
Sweden seems to be at least partly OK - kerberos
lives at kth.se...
Any suggestions for software packages to mirror
anyway (no one have sugge4sted any higher up in
the thread anyway)?
