Right (although I've been told to hold off just yet, because there's
no easy way to put our stuff in X-Plane format now).  But what I'm
wondering is what the contents of the database he's got now are, so
that I don't duplicate effort.  Put another way, is the most-current
runways.dat, with the data that'll be incorporated into this scenery
build, available in CVS?  If so, I can compare it to the current one,
see what airports have had taxiways added, and hold off on doing
those ones.
