Thanks for sharing these goals, which was an ideal first step. I think your next step is to pick a self-contained subset of those goals to implement as a first project. Then, start a thread describing a planned design for that particular subset. I recommend starting either with support for the OpenSSL compatibility mode of LibreSSL or with SCTP. When you send a design proposal for SCTP support, please explain why a person should choose to reach PostgreSQL over SCTP in lieu of TCP. The topic of SCTP support in PostgreSQL has never come up before. nm -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
