Hi everyone,

with the license of Berkeley DB version 6 having changed to a more 
restrictive APGL license, which is legally incompatible with most of the 
projects currently using BDB, Fedora's long term goal is to get rid of 
BDB completely. As ipv6calc is one of the projects still dependent on 
BDB in Fedora, I would like to ask you about the status of BDB in the 

Do you currently have any plans to migrate to/provide compatibility with 
a different DB given the license change or will you be staying with an 
older BDB version for the time being?
