Gauss Project

 I am proud to have helped realizing the Gauss Project:
There is currently much debate in Europe regarding SoftwarePatents in the light of the EU SoftwarePatentDirective and continued pressure to legitimize the EPO software patents dispite strong opposition. Motivated by this debate, we have build a Database of patent documents to document the current practice of granting patents on software in Europe.
My job was to get the wiki integration done. Therefore I introduced virtual pages to MoinMoin, which read the patents data on the fly from a Postgres database.
