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.

The german version of the base guide 6.4 is not yet available but I
have an idea.
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 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

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

Should this paragraph be changed to recommend that
