Your impression is completely, absolutely, horribly wrong. The TODO contains some ideas that are good but postponed, other ideas that are bad but we didn't know at the time they were recorded, other ideas that we don't know either way. Before doing anything on an item from the TODO list, you should first read the linked threads (if any), and keep track when they end with an email saying "what an awful idea". If this doesn't happen, _search_ for other threads not linked on the TODO list that also deal with the same topic; note if they end the same way (if you find such threads, it's useful to add a link to them in the TODO item). Even if you can't find overly negative opinions about some item, discuss it here before doing any actual coding. I wonder if we need a new page TONOTDO or something like that. -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
