Yes, +1 on that. > Maybe I just travel too much, but travel time is often long and > uninterrupted and thus pretty nice to work on patches. I don't travel as much as you or Magnus do (!) but I do offline work a lot, so I appreciate full message-ids. > I don't really see the problem, even with gmail style messageids > Discussion: cabuevez_uja0ddrw7apjh3nm4p0kghwopm0wpw4mh_gt2-n...@mail.gmail.com > isn't that bad. Yes, yes, I prefer to use the full URL because then a machine can tell whether it's an email address and not a message-id, which is useful for mangling addresses while at the same time not mangling message-ids. But I'm not going to force that on anybody. -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
