What is AllCommerce TM?
OpenSales AllCommerce is a commerce, content, customer and relationship management system. This
high-performance, scalable Internet application is written in Perl and uses a backend database. OpenSales
AllCommerce is released under the GPL.
why? i was initially put off by the blatant commercialism of the post, but:
1) It is new GPL'd code. I doubt anyone would complain if everything/slashcode was listed.
2) I like seeing companies that do their development in perl (i'm biased cause my company develops in perl as wel).
3) It was posted by Anonymous Monk, who's reputation is already so low that one more -- wouldn't make that much of a difference.

this is software designed for e-commerce site developers. there are perhaps a couple of those around here. there might even be a couple that would find this software useful. but for the vast majority of the people at this site, this post is a useless ad, for a product they will never need. this is a site to discuss Perl. this post was not discussing Perl, it was advertising its product. whether it was written in Perl or C or Fortran, it really doesn't matter too much, because its the product, and it use, which is being advertised and mentioned.
apparently this product still has a couple of bugs. the readme says that if any bugs are found, please let the company know. now, if they had asked for a couple of us to help with the debugging or test the software for them... then the post would have been about the code and would not have suffered the same fate.
yes, this post was related to Perl. but the main topic of the post was not Perl, the language, the programmers or even companies that develop in Perl. the point of this post was to advertise the product. pure and simple. thats not the kind of posts i like to see here.
sorry for the rant. no offense intended to anyone. i'm just not a big fan of advertisement.
Sorry guys I did not place it here for advertisment. I placed it here to have perl coders take a look at the source and help develop AllCommerce. AllCommerce is open source freely available for download and all we want is perl coders to help us out.Sorry I did not mean to offend any of you.

I placed it here to have perl coders take a look at
the source and help develop AllCommerce. AllCommerce
is open source freely available for download and all
we want is perl coders to help us out. Sorry I did
not mean to offend any of you. Just want a relationship
with developers to help further development. We want a
community to help put this product together and truly make
it collabrative code. So I hope you can forgive the
commercialism and help open source grow everywhere.
Especially companies trying to bring it to the mainstream.

I think this post would have had a better reception (welcome to the Monastery, by the way!) if you'd made yourself a part of the Perl Monks community before making it.
I promote my own project (Jellybean) occasionally, but I think other people put up with it because I also occasionally give good answers. We try to accept everyone here, but sometimes people want you to earn the right to do things a little differently.
Either way, welcome aboard, and good luck with AllCommerce. (I've looked into it before, seems like a decent system.)
