Frankly, PostgreSQL is practically a wonderland of inter-company collaboration. Yeah, there's some "does not play nice with others" which happens, but that's pretty much inevitable. Plus, it's also useful to have some companies go in different directions sometimes; the best approach to certain problems isn't always well defined. We might have a little more of that than is completely ideal, but it's rather hard to determine that. Anyway, all of this is a moot point, because nobody has the power to tell the various companies what to do. We're just lucky that everyone is still committed to writing stuff which adds to PostgreSQL. -- -- Josh Berkus Red Hat OSAS (any opinions are my own) -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
