Well, there is a reason why I put a big label there "Unofficial TODO List". I tried to make it clear that it's not an official stance of the project. If someone wants to spend an afternoon putting up a coherent description of their wishlist item complete with possible problems and solutions, then I don't see why we should stop them. The page someone has put up covering XML told me more about the current state of XML support in postgres than a few hours of archive searching would. It's just not official, that doesn't make it any less useful. Two points I'm not clear about on this thread though: 1. Authorized user: is that someone with an account, or someone who has been authorized by someone else? 2. I can see the official todo list being in CVS, which gives it all the access protection it needs. A wiki todo list can stay where it is, just that it's not official. [I've just made a reference to the TODO list in CVS from the wiki, that should help].
