I would vote -1 on that, simply because using PostgreSQL should be more than that just doing strict SQL. For example, in Ceilometer and Gnocchi we have custom SQL type that are implemented with different data type depending on the SQL engine that's being used. PostgreSQL proposes better and more optimized data type in certain case (timestamp or UUID from the top of my head). Not gating against PostgreSQL would potentially introduce bugs in that support for us. Oh sure, I can easily imagine that it's not the case currently in many other OpenStack projects. But that IMHO would be a terrible move towards leveling down the SQL usage in OpenStack, which is already pretty low IMHO. My 2c, -- Julien Danjou # Free Software hacker # http://julien.danjou.info
