[Pw_forum] optB86b-vdW pseudopotential

Hi all,

I want to make calculations using optB86b-vdW functional. If I
understand correctly, I just need to specify 'vdw-DF' in input_DFT and
use a pseudopotentials generated with the optB86b functional?

If so, is there an available database for optB86b pseudopotentials? I
wasn't able to find one.
Otherwise, could you suggest me any good references explaining the
basics of pseudopotentials and pseudopotential generation?

Thank you very much
