dba: new gpl version; new maintainers needed

as seen on dba-l: "What's available: A new, improved version of the code (dated March 17, 2000) [available at UCSB here]. This version now offers 'instant gratification,' whereby access to the results of the keyword search in each database is just a click away, without requiring the user to type in their search query again....

The California Digital Library's SearchLight service (
searchlight.cdlib.org/cgi-bin/searchlight
), which was originally based upon the DBA code, has replaced DBA at the University of California, San Diego. Since we are no longer maintaining the code, please join the DBA mailing list and share your patches and improvements with other interested parties directly. We will not be releasing any patches or new versions of DBA ourselves. We encourage you to take the code and use it as you see fit, under the terms of the GPL. If you or your institution would like to volunteer to be the official maintainer of the DBA code, please contact Christy Hightower."
