I think that's a big part of the problem. It's hard to get excited about something if you don't know what's happening.

But I am allowed to share the drafts with the group of ppl who are
supporting me.
Of course I am allowed to discuss the drafts with my folk before I will
give my votes and comments.

Even if you can't share drafts, would it be possible to give a summary of things that are being discussed in the committee? That way if there's people in the community with interests in particular topics, they could contact you and get involved.

Isn't it possible to create a closed mailing list - a list that won't
get published - on which
I can discuss SQL Standard stuff with the folk who wants to support me?

I could join such a mailing list if you create one, but it would probably be better if specific topics could be discussed on pgsql-hackers. Perhaps this is something you should bring up in the committee. I understand that the committee doesn't want to open its work to the whole world, but I also don't see why work-in-progress features couldn't be discussed in the public.

FWIW, I'm very glad you're on the committee! Even though I have no idea what's going on there, it gives me a warm feeling that there's someone on the committee who knows PostgreSQL. If someone proposes something that would hurt PostgreSQL, like syntax that we already use for something else, I know you're going to speak up.
