Thank you for licensing the documentation under the GPL and letting us
use it!

I've added the xtstat documentation to our online manual here:


As it exists currently, the page is mostly just a copy of your
documentation with some minor rewording in a couple places and some
re-formatting. When I get a chance I plan to re-create some of the
examples from your UC presentation using MariaDB and add them to the
page. Of course, you are free to make any changes or additions you want
as well.

I also linked back to the documentation on the PrimeBase site and to
your PBXT presentation from the UC.

Thanks again!
