man-db, the on-line manual database

man-db is an implementation of the standard Unix documentation system accessed using the man command. It uses a Berkeley DB database in place of the traditional flat-text whatis databases. man-db is used by several popular GNU/Linux distributions, including Debian and SuSE. It also compiles and runs on a number of proprietary Unix systems.

The Savannah project for man-db will, I hope, be regularly updated with new releases. The CVS repository is also kept there.
