Hi Marc,

you wrote:
A couple of questions and remarks:

* The Revenues section has different titles with the words: "from
donation receipt", "donation receipt to", "against tax receipt" --
were these supposed to mean "with tax receipt"?

well, the translations came from you IIRC - I have in my script:

("3221 Geldzuwendungen gegen Zuwendungsbestätigung", "3221 Monetary donations from donation 
("3223 Geldzuwendungen ohne Zuwendungsbestätigung", "3223 Monetary donations without tax receipt"),
("3225 Sachzuwendungen gegen Zuwendungsbestätigung", "3225 Benefits in kind donation receipt to"),
("3227 Sachzuwendungen ohne Zuwendungsbestätigung", "3227 Benefits in kind donation receipt 
("3230 Aufwandszuwendungen gegen Zuwendungsbestätigung", "3230 Expense allowances against tax 
("3232 Aufwandszuwendungen ohne Zuwendungsbestätigung", "3232 Expense benefits without tax 

, which are all donations (money, goods, stuff not reimbursed by 
members), either with someone wanting a receipt to hand in to
tax authorities, or without.
* What are "2565 Members boarding costs" -- boarding costs usually
mean putting up members in hotels/houses as well as perhaps food,
etc. Is this what you mean by this title?

Nope, that is paying e.g. lunch on a project meeting. Hotel costs 
would end up in 2560.

* What is meant by "2900 Other costs charitable mission"?

Expenses valid under German charitable law, that don't fit other

I wonder if the accounting software that is being used for the TDF
could output these reports more as .pdf files, or, in our native
Calc format (better for us to show off our software potential). This
would preserve the double-entry column setup rather than leaving it
up to the particular browser to render the columns (the file you
posted is in .html).

PDF should be easy to come by (print2pdf in my browser), for ODS I'm
sure there's scripting somewhere - any hints appreciated, the 
software in use is gnucash.

It would also be nice to have "Assets" and "Liabilities" included in
the report for the membership to keep track of.

Yep, though that needs some report hacking - again, help appreciated
from someone familiar with gnucash. I'll look into that myself 
eventually, just currently quite busy with getting Concardis 
working. ;)

Finally, is the accounting package being used by the TDF a German
based package and the file output posted on our mailing lists are a
translation of these files? Would it be possible for us to know the
name of the accounting package?

See above. Also, again IIRC you yourself were instrumental in 
getting this translation going. The original accounts unfortunately 
have to be German (using the so-called SKR49 account setup), which
is natively avaible in gnucash, but I hope we can get the 
translation script improved enough that this is comprehensible.
