If you think I'm nutty about discussing Berkeley DB in public,
well, consider this:
I helped review/edit "The RedHat RPM Guide" only under the
explicit stipulation that "Jeff Johnson" never appears in the
final product. And I was forced to remind counsel of a certain
former employer that, indeed, they were not in compliance with
a specific contractual agreement.
But these are my problems, not yours.
If you wish to contribute to rpm doco, send along a ssl pubkey,
and I'll try to get you wired up for cvs write access. The complete
text for "Maximum RPM" is @rpm5.org, and the licensing (to my reading)
permits modification as long as the book is never republished in hard
(All the details re licensing are within cvs).
