Hello Claude,

Sorry for now answering. Due to a shortage of people to review projects, we're not able to accept new projects for a little while.

Apologizes for the inconvenience.

Hi, Stephan,

As I wrote you on in the answer I sent directly to your mailbox, I've already reply to your mail, as you can see at http://savannah.gnu.org/task/?7087#comment2

Hi Claude,

I am waiting for an answer from you.

If within one week I still do not get a reply, I will remove your project. You will still be able to register it again once you have the time to deal with the registration issues.

Are you still willing to host your project at Savannah? If not, please tell us - we don't bite, and it will make us gain time.

Hi, Stephan,

Yes, I still wish this project be hosted by Savannah.

I originally want to wrote a wrapper to an existing database. I I've tried 3 different database engines, but none meets my needs, especially regarding indexation capabilities. So, I have no other choice as to wrote my own database engine.

There are no many files dedicated to this database engine, but it is fully functional (it is used, among others, by the 'Musicanet virtual choral library' at http://musicanet.org/ ; direct access to the database : http://www.musicanet.org/musica6.htm ), and, as I plan to add ACID properties, is intended to grow.

The Epeios core libraries are general-purpose libraries. Database engine dedicated libraries has nothing to do in it. Contributors to this libraries should not have the possibility to modify the Epeios core libraries, and vice versa. I think for this reason, this database engine dedicated libraries deserve their own project.

Hi Claude,

I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

Firstly I would like to let you know that we are sorry for the huge delay you have been facing. Do you still want your project hosted at Savannah?

Also, why do you think a separate project would be easier to maintain? Could this also be solved by creating another CVS module for example?

To help us better keep track of your registration, please use the tracker's web interface following the link below. Do not reply directly, the registration process is not driven by e-mail, and we will not receive such replies.

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: Epeios database-related Libraries
  • System Name:  esdb
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later


(Sorry for my poor English, but I'm French ...)
I'm the maintainer of the Epeios project (http://zeusw.org/epeios/), which CVS repository is already hosted on savannah (http://cvs.savannah.nongnu.org/viewvc/epeios/epeios/). I would like to move the files with their name beginning with 'dbs' ('dbsbsc.h', dbsbsc.cpp', dbsidx.h', 'dbsidx.cpp', ..., in the 'stable' directory) from this project to their own project, because this would made them easier to maintain. This would not be the first files from the Epeios project which were moved to their own project (see links below).

The 'dbs...' sources, written in C++, are dedicated to the management of databases. Writing a databases engine is not a simple task, and I've tried to use several other databases engine before writing my own, but they had limitation, particularly concerning indexation capabilities, which made them useless for me.

Along with their extended indexation capabilities (the indexation criterion are whatever you want), the 'dbs...' libraries are conceived to be deployed in a mono tasking environment (on a DVD-ROM, for example, with direct access to the databases on the DVD-ROW, without installing anything), but also in a multitasking environment (client/server environment). And they can be (and are successfully) used on GNU/Linux, but also on MAC OS and Windows.

This libraries depend only on the Epeios core libraries, which depend only on system libraries and on C/C++ standard libraries. They can be compiled with g++ on GNU/Linux, on Windows and on MAC OS.

Other Comments:

This project files actually belong to the Epeios project, which repository is hosted on savannah (http://savannah.nongnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/epeios/epeios/, 'dbs*' files in the 'stable' directory.).
