RATIONALE: comp.databases.berkeley-db

There is not a specific Usenet location for discussions on berkeley
database management software (from this point forward I'll refer to as
just 'berkeley-db'). Discussion pertaining to the library occurs on
many other other Usenet forums. Often writings are specific to
berkeley-db itself and does not pertain to the subject matter of the
group the discussion falls within. Not only would a berkeley-db
specific forum provide a central location for todays frequent Usenet
users, it would also provide an on-line research tool for those
seeking on-line issue assistance with the library. Entities such as
Google will provide archives of group postings, and search tools for
those seeking answers to berkeley-db questions - drawing those on-line
that were not aware of the Usenet group (or of net news as a whole).
>From the "Berkeley DB Reference Guide: Introduction": '[berkeley-db]
runs under almost all UNIX and Linux variants, Windows, and a number
of embedded real-time operating systems. It runs on both 32-bit and
64-bit systems. It has been deployed on high-end Internet servers,
desktop machines, and on palmtop computers, set-top boxes, in network
switches, and elsewhere.' As well, berkeley-db has been a tool
available to the programming community for over ten years and
is used on a global scale with over 200 million installations. The
need for an on-line, central location for community discussions has
been long standing. Usenet is the best tool to fulfill this need and
allows addressing this need on a global scale.


CHARTER: comp.databases.berkeley-db

The newsgroup comp.databases.berkeley-db is a news forum devoted to
the discussion of the berkeley database management library. Discussion
entails, but is not limited to: its usage in all programming languages
that can utilize it, bugs, patches, tricks, techniques, support,
announcements; all in a free and open atmosphere.
All postings should be in ordinary text format only. Postings of
binaries (or encoding thereof) is highly discouraged. Cross-posting of
articles irrelevant to the berkeley database library is also
discouraged. The berkeley-db newsgroup is not moderated. Therefore it
is up to the global user base to police its usage.

END CHARTER.
