Yes, U.S. mileage tracking, though I don't know if other countries use this sort of thing, too. I just happened to be reading the IRS publication relating to this before I posted it, and here's the link to it if it would help. But basically, if one chooses to track business-eligible miles instead of actual travel expenses, they can take a deduction of 50 cents per mile for 2010... http://www.irs.gov/publications/p463/ch04.html

The idea is well explained. The developers need to decide who’s going to work on this and when, but this idea will be considered in the near future.

This option would literally have saved me days of effort had it existed when I decided to try converting from my spreadsheet method of accounting to GnuCash, 6 weeks into the accounting year. Although it's too late to help me with that phase, I'd still love to have my contacts (safely) synced with my Gmail business account, perhaps via import/export with Thunderbird if not directly, for future use and avoiding much duplication of effort. I use those contacts with my mobile device when I'm on the road a lot, too. And yes, I saw the bug report discussion that mentioned it's not likely to be implemented soon, but I wanted to add another voice to the weight of it anyway.Jonathan supported this idea ·
The actual rate (50 cents per mile) is subject to change on occasion, so tracking bare miles instead of guessing a cost would be preferable, too.
