PostgreSQL 8.2 is out of the door. Unfortunately the plans for a more
detailed todo list have not come into reality yet to assist in for the
next 8.3 release. A couple people have replied to my earlier request to
form a little team willing to work on this, but unfortunately people
seem to have time constraints that prohibit them from working on this.
I am still willing to spend time on being the person secretary of
people, but I do not know enough about the internals of PostgreSQL to do
this on my own, let alone start an initial list like I did for the PHP
My goal is to for now cover the tricky long running todo's, document
their progress, the people involved as well as any discussions and more
importantly their conclusions. This should make it easier for other
people to help on these todo's, or even take over if for some reason the
original people do not have time to complete the todo themselves. This
should also help people like Bruce, because they can get an idea about
the progress without necessarily having to track down the people
involved and it should also make the progress more transparent to end users.
This is essentially what was started with the developers wiki already
. It seems the wiki is already seeing good use for the XML support
and query progress indicator.
Again, I am here and willing to help. I do not want to hassle this list
with a lengthy thread, so hopefully the result will just be someone
pushing me into the right directions.
