Subject Firebird HowTo
thanks to Helen for having explained so well how IBDI, IBPhoenix and
Firebird have come to be (your answer to the Firebird/IBPHoenix
Politics message).

I've tried to type an answer to your message, but also and mainly to
this entire discussion about the future of the Firebird SQL database
and how the community should deal with Borland Corp.

Well, I ended up with quite a long text and finally decided it's
better to put it on a HTML page rather than posting to the list.

You can find it here:

Unfortunately I have another job waiting to be done urgently and so I
won't be around much for next couple of months.

I wish all the best for the Firebird project and hope my text can
maybe give some inspiration to the community about what to do next.

Good Luck
