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/local/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.
