Not sure where you got 24 hours: Tues http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2012-05/msg00061.php Wed http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-general/2012-05/msg00060.php Thur http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-committers/2012-05/msg00023.php Basically, we have beta next week so I wanted to do it before then, and I have my head down doing the release notes, so I wanted to do it before I started that too. I kind of knew the bsdi answer before I even asked. If you are objecting to me short-circuiting this, I will revert the patch. If we can't short-circuiting thinks when we already know the answer, everyone's work will take more time. -- Bruce Momjian <br...@momjian.us> http://momjian.us EnterpriseDB http://enterprisedb.com + It's impossible for everything to be true. + -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
