While most of the demand for Jentla has been in Australia and the US, Hickey said there had been a lot of interest from Canada as well. He is undertaking a trip to the UK at the end of the month to participate in a major Joomla! event there to try and create a market for Jentla.
Hickey said that the Jentla extension certification programme was proceeding apace, with chief Joomla! developer Andrew Eddie acting as a consultant. The programme gives Joomla! users surety about the quality of the extensions they use and their usability.
While Jentla includes open source and proprietary elements, Hickey believes in contributing to the community as much as he can. The source for the certification programme will be released under the GPL once it is complete.
He said an administration template for Joomla!, which his company was creating, would also be released under the same licence.
"As a small company, we need to have a mix of components but we try our best to contribute to open source as much as we can," Hickey said.
Seven staff at Jentla are working on contributions to Joomla! - two are fixing bugs in the latest Joomla! release while five others are involved in the certification programme.
