I'm not so much opposed to removing the port. I am more concerned about the manner in which it was done. The other ports I removed were known to not work anyway, for years, and there were at least several days of discussion. The bsdi case was removing a working port with less than 24 hours notice. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
