Of those, only the TODO makes sense as a DB. You're welcome to go
The TODO list is a bit outdated, and it would make sense to make it
into a web page and assign names to the tasks and which releases the
TODO task will make it in. Perhaps it would even be useful for folks
to post their WIP patches, status updates, etc to such a page?
Any comments? I am willing to chip in. I could only imagine the
current workload for maintaining this is a bit overwhelming.
Before we rehash recent debates, please, everybody, review them. Going
over and over and over the same ground laboriously is really getting
tiresome, and unfortunately it's also getting more frequent. It's *déjà
vu *all over again.
And, for the record, I do not see the slightest point in putting the
TODO list on its own into a database. None, zilch, nada. As database
professionals we should be adept at recognising when the use of a
database is appropriate and when it isn't. If we put it into a tracking
system (presumably database backed) that would be another matter, but
that has gone nowhere as usual.
There is some point in putting it in a wiki where we can gather relevant
documents, links to discussions etc. That's why the developers' wiki was
