From the users mailinglist (2011.05.22):
Nigel Titley has an operational bridge working between Oscommerce and
LedgerSMB. He is happy to throw into the pot, especially once the
Ledgersmb RESTful interface comes out of the woodwork. It transfers new orders, new parts and new customers across from OSCommerce to LedgerSMB, handling multiple currencies and it updates the OSCommerce inventory from LedgerSMB. It runs as a regular cron job.
