I understand. When it comes to open item regulation, the aspects that keep me up at night are completeness and fairness. Minimizing list traffic about non-compliant open items is third priority at best.

I will keep an eye out for minor policy violations that I can ignore cheaply and fairly. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
