I will do that.

It would be better to include them with a "the latest corrected version is 
available at http:..." in the the preface.   Up-front references to and from 
the README.md would also be worthwhile.

Will do.  

I can offer some help.

I have no experience with web applications, internationalization, the modern
character sets,  nor with large projects.  I do have a good grasp of business
practices and accounting particularly with U.S. wholesale and retail trade.
I am fairly competent with postgresql.

My Perl ability could be applied to refactoring some of your code.
A quick look at 1.3.* or 1.4.* found some low hanging fruit:  bits of 
redundant or unreachable code; runtime code where compile time code should 
work; and a lack of basic idioms.
