[Pipet Devel] XML database woes

	Okay, last message! I just wanted to update everyone on the current
status of dbXML, the in-development XML database I was hoping to use to do
some XML storage.
	I went back to check on things (www.dbxml.org) after the break and
found out that the project is no longer open source with a BSD license, but
is apparently going to be bought out and go commericial...[censored: a
whole lot of not so nice words]... Anyways, I won't rant on about my
feelings on this, but I was just wondering if anyone knows what happens to
the code which was being previously released under a open source license. I
have the most recently released snapshot (which is not complete) and
documentation--can I use this to finish development or pass it out to
people who would want to continue the open source development of it? Or is
this code protected by the new commerical license?
	Along the same lines, has anyone heard about other open source XML
databases? (gotta keep me fingers crossed...:)
	Okay, last message from me. Sorry to clog up everyone's in boxes.
