With respect, I believe you are on the committee as you were an employee of MySQL. We've had a number of discussions both online and at one of the more recent developer meetings, and even approved funding around having (if I remember correctly) Peter or Simon represent us on the committee. > Always, when I suggested to talk about my work in the SQL committee on > community > events, a committee rejected it.

An event committee is not approving talks because the work is important to the community - they are approving talks that will be of interest to the conference audience. In the case of PG Conference Europe which I suspect you are alluding to there were a significant number of talks submitted that would be of far more interest and benefit to our primary audience of end users. -- Dave Page Blog: http://pgsnake.blogspot.com Twitter: @pgsnake EnterpriseDB UK: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
