Hi, First I want to introduce myself. I am a recent SQL-Ledger refugee that got tired of the way SQL-Ledger was being developped and the way the community was run (litterally). I have programming skills, but it is not my intent to get involved in core developpment, by lack of time. I do, however, hope I can politely bring my input here to help foster discussions and views. :) Now, I just quickly saw this discussion about templates storage, and I must say that I think they should remain on disk. That has many advantages, the first being that they can be edited with a regular editor, through FTP/SSH transfers, instead of being edited through a complex web interface. Second, it can also be useful to keep people from editing the templates, by simply making the templates chmod a-w. Third, I think that it is perfectly possible to have a secure way of storing and editing those files from the web, if the permissions are set right. Finally, I think it's easier to integrate with other tools (like latex for example) if the files are actually on disk. Then again, I know only so much about the LedgerSMB internals and assume much, but I feel that templates belong on disk. I don't like having big blobs in a database... Furthermore, templates often incorporate images, are you going to put those in the database too? A.
