development community to going to any kind of a tracker, even if it

Create own tracker is reinvent a wheel and waste a time. There are
a lot of trackers and I believe that one of them fit postgres
requirements. I agree with your idea to try one and if it will be
necessary we can add some functionality. But I think that there are
not clear requirements and I also afraid that there is not unified
view of core team on this.
Yes, when it comes to doing a full-blown tracker it would be a huge
