Yeah, it was funny, but it points a problem which is that we are overloading you to do the release notes thing. I agree that we should push individual developers to include release notes updates on the patches they submit. They are easier to write than the documentation update in any case (which as you say, not everyone submits), mainly because they are way shorter. (Or maybe not _push_ them to do that, but at least not forbid updating the release notes which AFAIK is the current policy.) -- Alvaro Herrera http://www.CommandPrompt.com/ The PostgreSQL Company - Command Prompt, Inc. ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 6: explain analyze is your friend
