What I did was to mention Slony and pgpool as "examples", so people realize there are many other soluions. It would be good to have a companion web site that could list them all, both open source and commercial. That is going to take a lot more work, but I think would have great value, especially since our documentation will clearly outline the terms. What you don't want to do is to throw up a list and have people try to figure out what solutions they cover. -- Bruce Momjian [EMAIL PROTECTED] EnterpriseDB http://www.enterprisedb.com + If your life is a hard drive, Christ can be your backup. + ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 6: explain analyze is your friend
