Aside from obviously the big issue of who maintains all the pgfoundry
stuff, I also think that the PostgreSQL family would benefit from a
distribution that is more "and the kitchen sink" style. I do not know
exactly if Bizgres could be considered just that? Or maybe it could get
promoted to be that?

Lukas, that is what www.mammothpostgresql.org is :)

Doh, yes .. totaly forgot about that one.

Again I think it makes absolute sense to have a nicely sized core for all the friendly forks to base their work on. However I think all newbie PR should be directed at the monolithic distro and not to that nicely sized core.

Cluefull people that want to create their own PostgreSQL distro will naturally gravitate to PostgreSQL, while newbies come to PostgreSQL right now. They dont find the feature they are looking for, and we miss out on getting them into PostgreSQL.

So what I am suggesting is that PostgreSQL.org should push people towards the monolithic distro. The docs should contain everything that is in the monolithic distro. At conference we should say the name of the monolithic distro etc.

Again, the truely cluefull people will naturally gravitate to the PostgreSQL core project while the monolithic distro sucks in the newbies.

Lukas
