The open items wiki page saw steady change from 30 April to 28 December; the two longest quiet periods were an eleven-day gap from 21 August and a nine-day gap from 16 December. Nineteen distinct contributors were finding, fixing or otherwise editing data about 9.5 defects. The integration work is too slow, yes, but this persistent myth of a dead period is false. For my part, I spent 1 July to 11 December reviewing 9.5 commits and reporting or fixing defective 9.5 work. (I did spoil myself with a few breaks fixing pre-9.5 bugs.) I doubt the 9.5 new bugs would have run dry within the next five months, either, but the release team picked a fair juncture to give up and call it dot-zero. nm  https://wiki.postgresql.org/index.php?title=PostgreSQL_9.5_Open_Items&limit=500&action=history -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
