AboutDB, the ACEDB database database (deliberate doubling :-) is now on
the 'web:


Background and guiding ideas:
  AboutDB was conceived and provisionally implemented during the
recently finished Ace94 workshop in St Mathieu de Treviers, outside of
Montpellier, France. AboutDB collects information on all aspects of
the developement and use of the database manager ACEDB, such as:
 people and organizations using it or implementing software for it,
 databases implemented in it,
 bug reports,
 projects involving the database manager,
 tools for the user, curator, or programmer,
 features within the program and
 tips and tricks of its use.
AboutDB is implemented in ACEDB (what else) and it is aimed at people
with at least some experience of ACEDB, such as programmers, curators
and advanced users.

The data is the same as it was July 15, when the workshop finished,
and thus not really curated yet. I will try to update some of the
information over the next few weeks. During this time the data and
probably the models will change daily ...

There is a very simple form for submitting data to the database. This
will also be enhanced in the near future.

If you have any comments, questions, gripes, ideas about the database,
if you have data sets or corrections to data that should be in the
database, or if you want to volunteer to take on some of the curation
(please!), do not hesitate to contact me.
