EDBS has a problem: E=einheitliche=unified is simply not true
for EDBS data from different authorities in Germany.
This it is not just a converter as many others. There
is the need to check back with several authorities to
learn about their interpretation of EDBS.
It is likely that we can develop a base converter and then
adjust/add everything we learn/detect.
A perfect job for the Free Software development model :-)
To my mind the development of a EDBS converter needs
a base funding to have a (at least partially) working
program. It will generate interest and further support
to complete work.
My estimnate is that you need 3-4 man month to establish
a base converter. BTW, you need data to test.
