RE: setting the default database in gnats 3.999.2

Thanks for your advice.  One should also note that gnatsdb is created as part 
of the mkdb process.  (This isn't very clearly stated in the "Installing the 
default database) documentation.)  As a result, the directory com, wherever you 
put it (I have it at /usr/local/com) should be writeable by gnats, since mkdb 
is supposed to be used to create database(s) while in ~/com.

I'm getting another error, however---

dezolt% ./mkdb default
Copying default files from /usr/local/etc/gnats/defaults
cp: cannot access /usr/local/etc/gnats/defaults/categories
Can't copy file /usr/local/etc/gnats/defaults/categories to 
/usr/local/com/gnatsdb/gnats-adm/categories, exiting

I am going to assume, forthe moment, that can grab a copy of and adjust my 
categories file from my build of gnats 3.113 and adjust to suit.  In the 
meantime, any suggestions on how to fix the abovementioned error would be

You should have a line like

  default:Bug database:/usr/local/com/gnatsdb

in /usr/local/etc/gnats/databases.

And let me tell you this. The older you do get, the more rules they're
going to try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin' man.
