I don't recall even having seen any proposal or discussion.
There has been some prior discussion:
But I agree that we need considerably more discussion before committing
the patch. I'm personally not sold on the need for modifications to the
SQL grammar, for example, as opposed to just using a set of SQL-callable
functions and some new system catalogs.
Another question that would be easier to resolve before the patch is
committed is naming: the patch currently uses a mix of "full text" and
"tsearch" as the name of the full-text search feature. If we're going
to bless this as "the" integrated full-text search in PG, it might make
more sense to use "full text search" and "FTS" exclusively.
We tried to use full-text search (FTS) in the documentation
http://mira.sai.msu.su/~megera/pgsql/ftsdoc/index.html. Tsearch used just
for historical notes, which may not go to the official documentation.
