Has FSFE developed any scripts that are used for:

- fetching data from public sites (like the bank)

- transforming/normalizing the data

- producing the reports (e.g. balance sheet) from time to time?

and could they be shared?

I wonder if people could use the CSV files to automatically populate
databases for the various free software solutions[1] and see them side
by side.

Are there any other free software tools used in the process, e.g. the
Firefox plugin ExportToCSV[2]?
