NAME
mkdb - create a new GNATS database SYNOPSIS
mkdb databasename DESCRIPTION
Looks up databasename in the GNATS databases file and creates a database in the location specified there. mkdb creates the directory and populates it with a set of default files copied from the /usr/share/gnats/defaults directory. Note the implications of this: an entry in databases must be created before mkdb is run. The command should be run as the GNATS user, by default gnats. OPTIONS
databasename Specifies the name of the database to be created. SEE ALSO

NAME
mkcat - create a new GNATS category SYNOPSIS
mkcat [ -d databasename | --database=databasename ] [ -h | --help ] DESCRIPTION
Scans the database for any new categories, creating new subdirectories in the database directory if any are found. This program is mostly obsolete since directories for categories are automatically created as necessary, but is left for histerical rea- sons. mkcat should be run by the GNATS user (by default gnats). OPTIONS
-d, --database Specifies the database to be scanned for new categories; if no database is specified, the database named default is assumed. This option overrides the database specified in the GNATSDB environment variable. -h, --help Displays a short usage message. ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
The GNATSDB environment variable is used to determine which database to use. For a local database, it contains the name of the database to access. If GNATSDB is not set, the database named default is used. SEE ALSO
