Thank you!

This means that I developped this software for a business purpose,
that is, to aim at earning. BOKIN model is a business model of obtaining
proceeds by widely collecting donations while distributing free software.
Now I'm writing 'The BOKIN Model Definition' to clarify it.

The name BOKIN has two meanings:
bookkeeping (BOokKeepINg) in English
collecting donations (BO=collect, KIN=money) in Japanese.

> Is there also a non-free version of bokin?

No, there isn't.
I won't release non-free version of it.

> Or do you mean simply that commercial use of bokin is permitted?

No, I don't.
Since BOKIN is free software, everybody can use it for any purpose.

GNU Make is used not only for the installation but also for the accounting
calculations. GNU Make is useful for batch based systems like BOKIN.

I'm sorry for my late reply.
