Yes, but it is more complicated. The reason to create the new figure was
that the old one is developer and file structure focused. The new one is

detailed explanation of the database from the intro to GRASS. The
helptext.html is now used (as link or button) for both explanation of the
database structure and into to using GRASS. The database page is here:


The into page is still missing. There is of course an overlap in between
these two. It could look like one of those:
