Of which I will counter that we don't have a hailed plugin mechanism. We have a contrib which professionals generally consider untested and not part of PostgreSQL. I am constantly running into this: Q. Does PostgreSQL have full text indexing? A. Yes it is in contrib. Q. But that isn't part of core. A. *sigh* Where on the website can I see what "plugins" are included with PostgreSQL? Where on the website can I see the Official PostgreSQL Documentation for Full Text Indexing? With TSearch2 in core will that fix the many upgrade problems associated with using TSearch2? Sincerely, Joshua D.
