Uh, we are already doing that.  EDB and NTT are working on FDWs and
sharding, PostgresPro and someone else is working on a transaction
manager, and EDB and 2nd Quadrant worked on parallelism.

What is the problem you are trying to solve?

Hey, if I am wrong that's awesome. The impression I have is the general workflow is this:

        * Company(1) discusses feature with community
        * Company(1) works on patch/feature for a period of time
        * Company(1) delivers patch to community
        * Standard operation continues (patch review, discussion, etc..)

This is not "bad" but it isn't as productive as something like this would be:

* Company(1) + Company(2) get together and discuss using their respective resources to collaboratively develop X (multi-master for example).

        * Company(1) + Company(2) discuss feature with community
        * Company(1) + Company(2) work on patch/feature in the open, together
        * Company(1) + Company(2) deliver patch to community
        * Standard operation continues (patch review, discussion, etc...)

The difference being one of coopetition versions competition for the betterment of the community. If there are companies that are doing that already, that is awesome and I applaud it. I was just trying to further drive that idea home.

This on my end all sourced from this event:


That event is childish and a poor representation of what our community stands for: Excellent, Correctness, Inclusion, Collaboration.
