It would be nice if there were some actual evidence about this, rather than numbers picked out of the air. > I agree that it's unfortunate that we haven't put more effort into > fixing that- I'm all for it, but it's disappointing to see that people > are not in favor of changing the default as I believe it would both help > our users and encourage more development of the feature. I think the really key point is that a whole lot of infrastructure work needs to be done still, and changing the default before that work has been done is not going to be user-friendly. The most pressing issue being the difficulty of changing the setting after the fact. It would be a *whole* lot easier to sell default-on if there were a way to turn it off, and yet you want us to buy into default-on before that way exists. Come back after that feature is in, and we can talk. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
