+This file is part of GDBM.
+See end of file for copying conditions.
+* Introduction
+This is a *pre-release* version, and not ready for production use yet.
+If you are taking source from CVS, you will need to have several
+special tools to help contribute. See the file README-hacking for more
+information. See chapter `Building' for the detailed instructions on
+how to build the package.
+Please, note that the accompanying documentation may be inaccurate
+or incomplete. The ChangeLog file is the authoritative documentation of
+all recent changes.
+Please, send comments and problem reports to <bug-gdbm@gnu.org>.
+* Checking Out the Sources
+The following instructions apply if you wish to obtain sources from
+the repository. There are several repositories:
+1. CVS at Puszcza.gnu.org.ua - master repository
+ <https://puszcza.gnu.org.ua/cvs/?group=gdbm>
+2. Git at Puszcza.gnu.org.ua - slave
+ <http://puszcza.gnu.org.ua/git/?group=gdbm>
+3. CVS at Savannah.gnu.org - slave
+ <http://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=gdbm>
+4. Git at Savannah.gnu.org - slave
+ <http://savannah.gnu.org/git/?group=gdbm>
+Slave repositories are synchronized with the master 8 times a day.
+** CVS
+To checkout the source tree from CVS issue the following command:
+ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gnu.org.ua:/cvsroot/gdbm co gdbm
+Or, to checkout the sources from CVS mirror at Savannah, issue the
+following command:
+ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.savannah.gnu.org:/cvsroot/gdbm checkout gdbm
+** Git
+To clone the Git repository, run:
+ git clone git://git.gnu.org.ua/gdbm.git
+Or, to clone the secondary GDBM Git mirrror repo, run:
+ git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/gdbm.git
+In all cases, this will give you read-only access. If you think you need
+write access, contact <bug-gdbm@gnu.org>.
+* Building
+Usual procedures apply:
+ ./configure
+ make
+ make install
