Long time no see.  I'm back.

Although you may not remember me, I was certainly here more than a year ago, 
submitting tiny patches for bug fixes and trivial functionalities, and 
reviewing/testing patches from others.  That was a fruitful and fun time for 
me.  Thank you a lot for helping me.

After that, I had to stay away from the community for some reason.  Now, I'd be 
happy if I can contribute to PostgreSQL again.  But please excuse me for my 
slow restart, as the blank period needs some rehabilitation.

Let me briefly introduce myself.  I'm MauMau, this is a nickname at home.      
And I'm Takayuki Tsunakawa, a male database engineer who works for Fujitsu in 
Japan.  I'm now able to participate in the community activity at work.

I've been visually impaired since birth, and now I'm almost blind (can only 
sense the light).  I'm using screen reader software to use PCs and smartphones. 
 As I'm using pgindent, I'm sure the source code style won't be bad.  But I 
might overlook some styling problems like indentation in the documentation 
patches.  I'd appreciate it if you could introduce a nice editor for editing 
SGML/XML documents.

I'm excited to join the great PostgreSQL community.  I'm dreaming PostgreSQL 
will evolve from the current "most advanced open source database" to "most 
popular and advanced database".  In that respect, I want to expand the 
PostgreSQL ecosystem (interoperability with other software), as well as adding 
new features.  Let me consult you about how to expand the ecosystem in another 
thread soon.

Finally, I'm wondering what direction PostgreSQL is headed for.  Especially, 
I'm curious about whether PostgreSQL will become a MPP database for OLTP and 
analytics by integrating with Postgres-XL/XC.  I don't yet figure out which 
segment PostgreSQL should aim for, now that Hadoop family is prominent in 
analytics and MySQL is still more popular in Web apps.  I'd like to know what 
community people are seeing in the future of PostgreSQL.
