I disagree with that approach. Larger more complex patches required
much more work and effort than small, simple ones. Not only do I
think it's unfair to the authors who spent considerably more time on
their work, but I think it also sets a bad precedent for future work;
saying, in short, that if you want to make large strides to improve
PostgreSQL, and you followed the community development process, you're
still potentially last in line for review.
Yep. We lose a lot of credibility if we did that.
So, we lose no credibility if we sit in feature freeze indefinitely, with no
direction, while we wait for reviewers to finish reviewing?
*cough* that is hardly what is happening. Just today we had two people
step up and commit to help reviewing. One of them is a committer (AndrewD).
I believe under no uncertain terms, that if we continual proactive
communication over the next several weeks that we will see a marked and
steady improvement to our existing status.
Let's keep this on earth shall we.
