Of course I am allowed to discuss the drafts with my folk before I will

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.
