       mkdb - create a new GNATS database


       mkdb databasename


       Looks  up  databasename  in  the  GNATS  databases  file  and creates a
       database in the location specified there.  mkdb creates  the  directory
       and  populates  it  with  a  set  of  default  files  copied  from  the
       /usr/share/gnats/defaults directory.

       Note the implications of this: an entry in databases  must  be  created
       before mkdb is run.

       The command should be run as the GNATS user, by default gnats.


              Specifies the name of the database to be created.
