Well, I'm not a lawyer and I'm certainly not volunteering to be counsel for Messrs. Olson et al. But I can recognize a troll when I see one. More to the point, this is an attack on a fundamental piece of open source infrastructure, and I'm quite sure that a lot of large companies will be stepping up to help ensure that it stays open. I feel no need for us to do anything, until and unless there's an adverse court ruling, which I fully expect there will not be. And if there is, we won't be the only ones looking for an alternative solution. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
