Ken, You have obviously devoted a significant amount of time to the entire process needed to track EE bonds in GnuCash and I think that it would be nice to document your work in a way that other users could find it and benefit from it.
I am not a developer nor do I know the best place in the WIKI or FAQ to document your work, but if another could point out the best place to put it, I would at least like to see links to this thread documented.
