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 mature.

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 :)
