FlameRobin - why?

MG> Nice work that you are doing! But please may you tell me why
MG> you invent the wheel again? There are enough good admin tools out
MG> there for Firebird: IBAdmin, IBExpert, ....

please read the first 5 lines of our home page at and you'll see that what we are building
doesn't exist yet. You have probably missed them, so I am pasting here
the relevant part for your convenience:

Our goal is to build a tool that is:
- lightweight (small footprint, fast execution)
- cross-platform (Linux, Windows for start, others planned too)
- dependant only on other open source software

MG> Before you write a software that (I AM SORRY TO SAY THAT!)
MG> nobody needs, invest your time in help to push the Firebird
MG> project (the database itself).

Thank you for your comments. I certainly know a handful of people that
do need FlameRobin, and they are all being CC'd in this message. :-)
So your assumption is wrong, even without counting the thousands of
downloads the project has had so far.

Let us know if you need any further clarification.
