I can’t think of any reason why not, and you don’t need anyone’s

I am bring this conversation back to the group because Pulkit and I need
a decision from Oliver or perhaps Jean. Are we free to update version
6.2 to 6.4 after we have completed 6.2? There are at most only a few
changes that need to be made. Basically these are only for the few bug
fixes for Base.

Why we have to translate from german?
We have a 6.2 guide(or maybe we will have). Why can't we just update
it to match the 6.4 version.

        I have edited th paragraph(registering the database) and I
        have uploaded the rest of the chapters of the base handbook.
        Now you can review them and someone can have a second review
        of chapter 0-2

            I think I will go with the second choice.

                I have accepted most of your edits. As for your
                comment on weather or not to register the database, I
                am surprised at it too. The german versions say that
                one should register a database upto version 6.0 but
                in version 6.2 they say not to register the database.
                Should I change it in the English Version?

                Robert and I have different views on this particular
                point. I was the person who wrote the version of
                Getting Started with Base chapter for
                2.0 in 2005 or 2006. That was when HSQLDB was added to
                Base. For several years I continued to work on the
                Base Guide for several years with little support from
                others. I dropped out for a while but have returned to
                the documentation team. I respect Robert and his
                obvious knowledge of databases because knows what he
                is doing. I have been registering all of my databases
                when they are created for all of this time. I have
                also developed my personal databases which I have
                accessed from other components of first
                and then LIbreOffice. So, I have found already having
                the database registered is a convenience.

                Should this paragraph be changed to recommend that
                databases should be registered when created in the
                English version? Yes. One other possibility: "It is
                recommended that all databases should be registered
                when created, but the final choice belongs to the
