I think you're contending that, as formulated, this is not a valid v10 open item. Are you?
As the person that came up with this formulation, I'd like to give a quick summary of my current understanding of the item's status: * We're in agreement that we ought to have initdb create initial collations based on ICU locales, not based on distinct ICU collations . * We're in agreement that variant keywords should not be created for each base locale/collation . Once these two changes are made, I think that everything will be in good shape as far as pg_collation name stability goes. It shouldn't take Peter E. long to write the patch. I'm happy to write the patch on his behalf if that saves time. We're also going to work on the documentation, to make keyword variants like -emoji and -traditional at least somewhat discoverable, and to explain the capabilities of custom ICU collations more generally.  https://postgr.es/m/f67f36d7-ceb6-cfbd-28d4-413c6d22f...@2ndquadrant.com  https://postgr.es/m/3862d484-f0a5-9eef-c54e-3f6808338...@2ndquadrant.com -- 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
