What do you think "core adoption" means? Surely not that anything associated with PGXN would be in the core distro. > Right now contrib is serving two completely separate purposes: > 1) location for code that (for technical reasons) should be tied to > specific PG versions > 2) indication of "official endorsement" of a module by the community This argument ignores what I think is the real technical reason for keeping contrib, which is to have a set of close-at-hand test cases for extension and hook mechanisms. Certainly, not every one of the existing contrib modules is especially useful for that purpose, but quite a few of them are. 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
