Friendly. Our current version is 4.2.1
This is an ALPHA port of our current base code from PostgreSQL , Our intent is to get this code running and use our understanding of it to build a new data model for our version 5 which will be built with many of the same technologies as Moodle to make the two virtually one. Please help us.

Glad you are working on this project. We have an in-house SIS system but would much rather go with something open source so we will certainly watch and hopefully be able to help with this project.
And if it can play well with Moodle, that would be really cool.
Please if you have the interest and time to help make this work e-mail me at
firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
p.s. this is also a move for the project do to an announcement from eduforge that they are dropping SVN services.
I would like to have Opensis installed on my site but I don't have the technical background to understand the installation instruction. If you have experience with Opensis installation and are willing to lend a helping hand, please contact me at <font color="#0000ff">firstname.lastname@example.org</font>.
Check with Bob Ghosh co-founder of OS4Ed: bob at os4ed.com. Moodle integration effort is now underway and I am sure he will be happy to have help.

We are extremely interested in integrating or providing a web services/API hook to Moodle from openSIS. Initially we planned to wait for Moodle 2.0. But, we are aware of the release delays. Therefore, we have started creating the integration points on the current stable version. I am hoping to roll out the service in Summer so that that schools can go to production for Fall this year.
I’ll notify by Twitter once we have the beta product up and running for demo.

Excellent news! I look forward to seeing what all has been accomplished! Peace - Anthony
But what's interesting they didn't release it as open source. They kept it as cloud hosted or commercial. I think openSIS could be the very best product out there if the company was more focused on open source model instead of only focusing on the commercial product.
Release the whole code with all the modules and offer it also as a cloud hosted service. I'm sure there are enough organizations that would host with you to pay the bills. Also releasing all the code to the community would greatly help your coding efforts by allowing many skilled coders to help debug the code and add features.
What do you mean it is not open source?
It most sure is open-source.
OpenSIS is open source; however, the "Moodle integrator" which enables OpenSIS and Moodle to talk back and forth costs $3000.
I guess nobody is perfect
Right! So why have they been promoting a non open source commercial feature on a moodle forum all this long?!
A little disappointing isn't it?
