Re: RFC: common database policy/infrastracture

another update for those interested:


deb http://people.debian.org/~seanius/policy/examples/ ./
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~seanius/policy/examples/ ./

i've incorporated many of the changes discussed in the related
d-d threads into the document, as well as into the database-common
skeleton package.

i've also added a section to the online document for a proposed
installation/removal process, which outlines in much more detail
the process of configuring/installing/upgrading/removing
databases.  input is very much appreciated for this, as it will
be the foundation for the rest of the code.

still needs to be done, though i think it's better if we can settle
on what exactly we want it to do before we go and do it.

i'm about half way done with a proof of concept source package
that will generate a generic, mysql, and postgresql version of
an example database application to test this stuff out.

still accepting input!

thanks to oliver for the postgre stuff.

probably better to wait until the questions solidify themselves
before we ask for help with this.
