Budget planning of the communes
we (http://common-lisp.net/project/cl-dwim/) are working on the budget planning and general communication to the communes in hungary.
this is basically an ajaxy webapp with ~5000 users (~500 at peak times) that gathers information from the communes and (based on the budget laws) computes the money each commune gets. at given moments in the year this survey is updated and the numbers recalculated based on the new survey results and the possible changes in the law. the site runs on a cluster of blades with threaded SBCL's (using sticky web sessions).
the whole software stack is free and on top of it is SBCL (a very big thanks to all the developers, SBCL is a key component for us and works great!).
we use numerous opensource libraries, and wrote several others ourselves. we are using the ucw_ajax branch, but there's some more detail available at the link above.
ps: although the app seems to be a big success based on the feedback from the users, it looks like the government is not willing to invest in it (and we are not willing to fill pockets). so we may be available for telecommunicating jobs in the near future...
