Why? I might agree if the RMT had an outsized influence on final outcome. If that's the case, then it's something that I missed. I also don't think that it's fair to expect Noah to spend a lot of time poring over whether sending out one of those pro forma status update policy violation mails is warranted. I expect someone is his position to aim to err on the side of sending out too many of those. It's easy for the patch author to explain the situation, but hard for the RMT to understand the situation fully at all times. -- Peter Geoghegan -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
