Hi gang,

	I just had an issue with running db-extra:

-bash-3.2$ /arch/db-extra
Updating DB for extra i686
==> Processing new/updated packages for repository 'extra'...
Checked out revision 3041.
    Checking SVN for scribus
==> Extracting database to a temporary location...
==> Adding package 'scribus-'
  -> Removing existing package 'scribus-'...
  -> Creating 'desc' db entry...
  -> Computing md5 checksums...
  -> Creating 'depends' db entry...
==> Creating updated database file /tmp/db-update.extra-i686.533/build/extra.db.tar.gz
No packages to delete

Cleaning staging dir

Eric just reported that, the db has his user permission, which is why I
can't overwrite it:
-bash-3.2$ ls -l /home/ftp/extra/os/i686/extra.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 eric   users      412828 Jun 17 22:44 /home/ftp/extra/os/i686/extra.db.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 eric   users      412653 Jun 17 22:44 /home/ftp/extra/os/i686/extra.db.tar.gz.old
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ftp    ftp-extra  320495 May 21 05:36 /home/ftp/extra/os/i686/extra.db.tar.gz.orig
-rw-r--r-- 1 pierre ftp-extra 3066292 Jun 18 03:57 /home/ftp/extra/os/i686/extra.files.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 aaron  ftp-extra 3059214 Jun 17 16:41 /home/ftp/extra/os/i686/extra.files.tar.gz.old

bye can anyone with permissions can take care of that? thanks
