Hi David ! => => What about the WWW/WAIS interface to the database? = =I will add it to the list. It probably slipped my mind (by my software =engineer perspective) since it is not part of the database software =itself, but a separate project. = =As far as me concerned, it is a very useful addition to the database =interfaces we already have and thus should be high on our priority list =(for the new website). I think that's 2 different issues: - WWW/WAIS access to the information contained in the DB That's probably a separate project that might need some finishing touches from the DB software engineer(s) - WWW/HTML/HTTP functionality in the DB-SW package and the whois-server and whois-client That's from my point of view part of the item to include/provide means to register URLs (in some way or another) in the DB objects. But registering the URL strings itself is not a major problem (we could use a remarks field for that porpose as an interim measure - look at spt1-ripe :-), but the *access* to the objects by way of an http or whois interface is! I haven't found a trick yet to make my browser process an object as html code... For the moment I'd like to concentrate my efforts on the second aspect! David, is there a chance to meet you during the IETF to share some drinks and thoughts? Wilfried.
