Thanks for the response. One thing I love/hate about forums is that many of us open our mouths way too early.
i am familiar with many of those projects (starting to look at Elgg as we speak) and it's great to see the angle you are coming from.
I see no issues at all in the selling of services..that is after all where the open source dollars are.I am just glad that you are also open with your code. I am sure you will have a very succesful business on your hands when you are full operational.
Have you thought of applying to be a Moodle Partner?
