Flamerobin 0.6 soon and new DDL property page

Subversion is back again, so I commited the initial version of DDL
extraction support.

Extracting DDL for individual objects works, except that it does not
extract DDL for privileges (GRANT ... stuff). Extracting DDL for entire
database is close to complete, I just need few more things to add.

In the process, I added a propery page for domains. Nothing fancy, just
the CREATE statement.

We're getting close to 0.6.0... :)

Porting the EMPLOYEE database from Firebird 2.0 to MySQL 5.1

Pabloj ( Moderator of Oracle and MsSQL (a.k.a. SQLServer) forums at Devshed.com) wrote an article comparing firebird and mysql 5.1.x features And he used flamerobin in the process ;) :
"Hi, I've decided to make an in depth test of MySQL's new functionalities by porting Firebird's EMPLOYEE.FDB database to MySQL 5.1.5, here is what I found, I hope it will be useful for people porting apps from MySQL to Firebird and vice-versa.
First of all, a screenshot (taken from Firebird's excellent Flamerobin admin tool) showing the actual employee.fdb structure.
Note the presence of generators, (aka sequences) won't be available in MySQL, I'll mimic them with autoincrement fields."

The SVN repository is online now.

Everything valuable from the
fbmanager CVS repository has been migrated.
The delay was mainly due to my
ignorance about how to get the correct "CVS tarball".

I have granted SVN permissions and revoked CVS permissions on
flamerobin to all developers. I have also disabled the CVS service in
both flamerobin and fbmanager projects.


I'd like to request the SF to close down fbmanager altogether once the
SVN beta period is over.
