Contribute localization to Trunk or Stable? Linux mobile plans?

FYI, there already is a mobile version of GnuCash. It is actually quite
good. It dies not sync into the GnuCash desktop app automatically. But
export and import, to desktop, capabilities are there.

Some feedback: to compete with GnuCash, KMM needs to include reports based
on accounting practices. I know KMM targets home users that don't know the
difference between a credit or debit to an account, but experienced users
do and know it is best to have reports that way. GnuCash falters in that it
does not allow for tags or classes. Categories are just accounts in
GnuCash. KMM, from what I understand backs up categories with accounts, to
follow double entry accounting standards. So we are half way there. We just
need the reports to show correctly.

Then once we have that working, I think a large number of users will flock
over to we need to make the ledger tab-able. People like having
multiple tabs. And we like being able to enter transactions in the expense
accounts. It should be allowed. No reason not to.

GnuCash is currently fighting the battle on whether it should include
categories/classes,or not. Try may just implement tags. KMM should allow
trans entry in expense and income accounts, GAAP reporting style, fix the
show balance graph. For liabilities it shows upside down.

If we do that the mobile version will be great!
