* Package name    : sdb
  Version         : 0.6

  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : simple and fast key/value database

  sdb is a simple key/value database with disk storage, based on cdb, but
  with various optimizations and improvements related to both the on-disk
  format and the runtime processing.  Its core API supports querying and
  modifying data within JSON objects stored in the database, as well as
  references to external sdb databases using namespaces.

I am aware that a slightly outdated version of the sdb sources is
distributed within the radare2 source package, but I have the feeling
that this library also merits distribution on its own.

G'luck,
Peter

Maybe elaborate more on how sdb compares with other nosql databases.

For inspiration you could look here: http://nosql-databases.org/

Things I would find quite useful is if it requires all loaded in memory 
at runtime (like Redis), its speed compared to similarly featured ones, 
and if it mimics some existing popular ABI.

Also, it might be helpful to mention explicit if this is not the same as 
the "sdb" mentioned at above site (which is written in PHP so I guess 
not).

I totally agree with that view!

Subject: bug 704059 is ITP for package sdb already in Debian
Date: Mon, 7 Apr 2014 01:17:24 +0200
Hi,

There is already a package sdb in Debian:
http://packages.qa.debian.org/sdb

But it is not the same package that you are trying to package.
You should rename your package and retitle this bug.

Regards.
