Well, you're wrong. How could this email possibly have been any more clear? http://www.postgresql.org/message-id/CA+TgmoYA=uixxmn390sfgfqgvmll-as5bjal0om7yrppvwn...@mail.gmail.com You can hardly tell me you didn't see that email when you incorporated the technical content into the next patch version. > While I wasn't public about it, I actually specifically discussed this > question with others, a few times even, to try and make sure that I > wasn't stepping out of line by moving forward. And yet you completely ignored the only public commentary on the issue, which was from me. I *should not have had* to object to this patch going in. It was clearly untimely for the August CommitFest, and as a long-time community member, you ought to know full well that any such patch should be resubmitted to a later CommitFest. This patch sat on the shelf for 4 months because you were too busy to work on it, and was committed 5 days from the last posted version, which version had zero review comments. If you didn't have time to work on it for 4 months, you can hardly expect everyone else who has an opinion to comment within 5 days. But, you know, because I could tell that you were fixated on pushing this patch through to commit quickly, I took the time to send you a message on that specific point, even though you should have known full well. In fact I took the time to send TWO. Here's the other one: http://www.postgresql.org/message-id/ca+tgmobqo0z87eivfdewjcac1dc4ahh5wcvoqoxrsateu1t...@mail.gmail.com > All-in-all, I feel appropriately chastised and certainly don't wish to > be surprising fellow committers.

No, I think we should discuss it right now, not nine months from now when the issue has faded from everyone's mind. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: 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
