Free documentation database

Gaetano Paolone writes "Dear friends,
I am pleased to inform you that GFDD (GNUtemberg! Free Documentation
Database) has reached a rather stable version.
" GFDD is already
on-line ( and some documents have already been
indexed. Our classification is based upon Dublin Core and OMF.

GFDD is a free project for free documentation.

We are looking for new developers (we love PHP and PostgreSQL...)
to add new features to the database and new document maintainers
(the ones who submit and maintain updated data).

Also we need feedback to make powerful our db.
Here is GFDD user's manual: _s_manual1.html
