You're missing my point completely. You say you represent PostgreSQL on the SQL Committee (or German working group, but that's not the point), yet the PostgreSQL hackers didn't know that, and were making other plans less than 2 years ago. For me, a representative would have been reporting back to us after each meeting, and discussing points to raise before each meeting - not working in isolation, without the knowledge of others. I'd be glad to see us have representation, but I do not believe we have had any yet, and whatever you have done so far (which may or may not be good for us) really doesn't count because it hasn't involved the project in any way. -- 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 (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
