Hello Stefan,

If Firebird users want to have GUI too, we should consider the options.
The situation now is really different than several years ago, so including a free GUI to Firebird umbrella now is really a option. For example, at Firebird Conference there was presentation about RedExpert - GPL license, multi platform, developed by contributor of Firebird and (since last week) Platinum sponsor.
I tried its beta on Linux and Windows and it worked far better than thing included into Postgresql and abandoned FlameRobin.

Of course, we should discuss all aspects before making the decision.

I don't get the point. There are GUI tools readily available
(IBExpert, Upscene, etc.). If you want to have it for free, like in
free beer, you can sit down, write it and publish it (that's how free
software is made ...). The Firebird Project just doesn't have the
resources to do it. We need the available developers for the database
core and not for a fancy GUI tool.
