GEPS 010: Relational Backend

Reasons for adding a sql backend
Further implications:
# A fullscale MySQL backend would be a trivial step from SQLite True as long as the SQL written to access the database conforms to a particular defined standard. SQLite appears to support (most of) SQL-92. So for portability reasons we must code to the SQL-92 standard if SQLlite is chosen as the lowest common denominator. --[[User:Gburto01|Gburto01]] 23:06, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
# Easy to allow multiple users in a SQLite database (uses file-locking)
# There is a lot of code that we have written dealing with BSDDB. It would have to all be rewritten in SQL (on the other hand, a lot of code can be deleted, which will make GRAMPS easier to maintain and adapt)
# We will have to develop SQL experts
I have been writing SQL for 20 years :) --[[User:Gburto01|Gburto01]] 23:06, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
Development is not death however, it will only be out of sync of the python cycle. The home of pybsdb offering the bsddb3 package is hereL
