Yeah, but if PostgreSQL decides to endorse one monolithic distro in
the way I described it could give that project hopefully the necessary
lift. And the ultimate goal is obviously that some of those newbies
coming by way of the monolithic distro turn into people that bring
ressources to the PostgreSQL platform/ecosystem.
Should Linus endorse (or does he?) one distro of Linux, or should they
not live on their own merits?
No he does not.
I believe leaving the "expert" opinions to the "experts" is a good
argument. I also believe that anyone on this list has a right to express
their opinion and make it known.
However, as a group of which I am a part of, I do not believe we
(PostgreSQL.Org) should be endorsing anything but the core project.
I for example, will endorse PL/Java. Not because of anything to do with
Dave but because of the research I have done to date, PL/Java is more
I also currently endorse Slony-I for 8.1 installations but that is only
because we don't have a 8.1 release yet (4 weeks W00t!).
I on the other hand, do not endorse Perl or anything to do with Perl :)
