If it was the case that you were only 50% of the way to getting something committable, I guess I'd understand; this is, after all, a volunteer effort, and you are of course free to pursue or not pursue whatever you like. It's more like 95% though, so I have a hard time understanding this attitude. The only criticism that I imagine that you could be referring to is my criticism (which was seconded by Tom) concerning the approach to sizing a buffer that is used as state between successive calls to the sortsupport routine. This was a fairly trivial point even within the context of this patch. It was regrettable that it got so out of hand, but that certainly wasn't my intention. I must say that I find this disheartening as a reviewer, particularly since it comes from someone who reviews a lot of patches (including most of my own), and has often complained about the difficulties that reviewers face. Is it really so hard for you to accept a criticism from me? I didn't expect you to fully accept my criticism; I only expected you to take it into consideration, and possibly let it go for the sake of progress. For what it's worth, I have high regard for your work generally. In all sincerity, this appears to me to be a slight, and I find it upsetting, both on a personal level, and because it creates a concern about being able to work with you in the future, which is certainly something that I've benefited from in the past, and hope to continue to benefit from. -- Peter Geoghegan http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Training and Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
