Hi,

Am 29.07.2010 06:37, schrieb Ian G:
This Community has always preferred open source.  It's not always
possible to arrange this, but there is a sense that it should be the
case for all the critical domain software.  Indeed, audit criteria
establish strong control provisions over our critical assets, which
tends towards us needing either full ownership or control established
under a strong licence (aka, agreed open source licence).

looking at CAcert principles it would be appreciated to migrate the database to an open database.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/opengeodb/ might be one possibility.

But migration would not be that easy I guess.

  * Updates can be send easily to connected CAcert developers update
receivers

I'm unclear to me why this would be an advantage.  As a programmer, the
last thing I'd want to do is deal with ... data updates.  But perhaps
I'm missing something?

For development purposes imho a snapshot should suffice. Maybe even some open database can be imported for testing purposes (depends on the data format).
