* The specious argument that we should "just" have CREATE INDEX create equivalent indexes across partitions, to save all those people from writing all those scripts. The reality is that there are several ways that that would not comport with the existing design of things. Most obviously: where does that leave the design of global indexes that we eventually come up with? Now, maybe there is a good way to make this easier for users, worth doing sooner rather than later, but that will be subtle, and you should at least acknowledge that. * "It leaves me asking what else is missing"... "If we wanted them to act identically we wouldn't have any need for a new feature at all, so clearly that doesn't make sense as an argument." These remarks sound imperious to me. I think that this could be quite demoralizing to someone in Amit's position, and you ought to give some consideration to that. I think that several of your remarks on the patch are facile and/or needlessly ambiguous, which is what makes this lack of tact seem unfair to me. * "Good work so far, but there is still a very significant amount of work to do." There is always more work to do, so why say so? I think that the implication is that this isn't complete as a feature that goes into the next release, which I disagree with. There is nothing disappointing to me about this feature, and, as I said, I am unsurprised that it doesn't support certain things. -- Peter Geoghegan -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
