You're welcome :-)

Not at all! Go ahead, fork whatever is closer to what you want (be it
wheredoesmymoneygo.org, cameroon.openspending.org, slovakia.openspending.org,
or whatever you're able to find in github.com/openspending) and use it for
your own needs. They're all free software :-)

I might be wrong (Friedrich or Lucy, please correct me if so), but they're
subdomains on openspending just because we needed a place to put them in
for showcase, and it was the one that made more sense. As far as I know,
there's no plan on doing <country>.openspending.org, although that sounds
cool :P

If you get stuck while developing and need more help, please send an e-mail
to the openspending-dev list (
