Welcome to ScarletDME.org. [[ScarletDME]] is a OpenSource [[multivalue|MultiValue]] database, a community fork of [[OpenQM]] originally developed by [[Ladybridge]]. This project was founded on the 28th November 2008 to independently develop future versions of [[ScarletDME]] and contribute to [[OpenQM]]. While there are no longer regular official releases from [[Ladybridge]] we aim to support and develop for Scarlet to help our commercial sister, While providing a Free and open platform for Multi value development.  
gpl.openqm.com is dedicated to the development of a community distribution of [[OpenQM]], by providing an environment where anyone can acquire, study and contribute to the [[OpenQM]] [[multivalue]] database.

This project is focussed purely upon the GPL implementation of [[OpenQM]], originally developed by [[Ladybridge]]. This project was founded on the 28th November 2008 to independently develop future versions of [[OpenQM]]. Naturally, contributors to [[OpenQM]] are welcome to submit any changes that they may make back to Ladybridge for inclusion in Commercial QM.

Submissions to this project must be under the GPL version 2, with the option to use a later version if the licensee wishes. Or they can be licensed under the LGPL if you wish to encourage and allow incorporation into proprietary products. Contributors to [[ScarletDME]] are welcome to submit changes back to Ladybridge as well, for inclusion in Commercial QM. See [[Commercial submissions]] for details. We encourage submission to Ladybridge, the founder of this MultiValue database. We do recognize their processes are not as easy as traditional GPL projects. So we simply offer an easier forum for development with less stringent controls on contribution and participation.

Welcome to ScarletDME.org. ScarletDME is a OpenSource MultiValue database, a community fork of OpenQM originally developed by Ladybridge. This project was founded on the 28th November 2008 to independently develop future versions of ScarletDME and contribute to OpenQM. While there are no longer regular official releases from Ladybridge we aim to support and develop for Scarlet to help our commercial sister, While providing a Free and open platform for Multi value development.

Submissions to this project must be under the GPL version 2, with the option to use a later version if the licensee wishes. Or they can be licensed under the LGPL if you wish to encourage and allow incorporation into proprietary products. Contributors to ScarletDME are welcome to submit changes back to Ladybridge as well, for inclusion in Commercial QM. See Commercial submissions for details. We encourage submission to Ladybridge, the founder of this MultiValue database. We do recognize their processes are not as easy as traditional GPL projects. So we simply offer an easier forum for development with less stringent controls on contribution and participation.
