Re: ITP: gnome-db



gnome-db is a a shot at something like the ODBC api's available under windows.
I proposed the idea on gnome-list many moons ago, and it was picked up by
Michael Lausch, who I believe is the main developer.

gconf is a shot at something like .ini files, or the windows registry.

Before criticising someone, walk a mile in their shoes. Then when you do
criticise them, you will be a mile away and have their shoes.
