For those who downloaded the packages (I saw You in server logs! ;-)
and those who have not decided to test FireBird yet - new packages
are available.

- copyrights file content
- typo in updating /etc/hosts.equiv which prevented super server from
- lack of removal of files in /var/run/firebird which caused errors when
switching between super and classic server (file formats seem to be
- lintian errors (unfixable warnings remained)

As we are on the topic - there is database file, which holds data about
users and their rights. ATM it is being put into
/var/lib/firebird/system/isc4.gdb. From technical point of view it's
a database like every other. But I'd rather say it's a config file,
as it:
- holds users database
- holds their rights etc.
- should NOT be removed when upgrading (I think this is what would
happen now, as it is normal file, which exists in every FB package)

The question then is: should I put this binary config file in
/etc/firebird ? If not - can I mark it as config file w/o moving
it to /etc ? What's Your advice ?
