Fantastic! I'll let Kevin comment on your questions regarding that project. > Until then, I would like to familiarize myself a bit with the codebase and > fix some bug/todo.

One of the best things which you can do to start learning the PostgreSQL code base is to review existing patches which have been proposed for inclusion. Now is a great time to be doing that as the feature freeze for the next version of PostgreSQL (PG v10) is at the end of the month and there's a ton of patches which need reviewing. The patches which need reviewing can be seen here: https://commitfest.postgresql.org/13/ There's lots of information on our wiki and other places about developing PostgreSQL, you can start here: https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Development_information and in particular: https://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/So,_you_want_to_be_a_developer%3F We look forward to working with you! Welcome! Thanks! Stephen
