Hi all!

I know this is OT, sorry for that.

I just wanted you to know that I've read this thread and welcome any and all 
help in order to get Npgsql in best shape as possible.

As pointed out by Robert, join us on Npgsql Forums so we can discuss. This 
would be very nice! 

I also agree with Brar Piening about the need to have better interfaces and 
Npgsql Team hopes to get Npgsql in a great standard so it is easier for .net 
developers out there to start using Postgresql and enjoy working with Npgsql 
and Postgresql! :) That's what I want to happen.

Andrei, it would be very nice if you could join us to help make Npgsql better! 

Thanks in advance.

That would be nice. Of course none of this seems relevant to hackers, so I'd 
ask those interested to check out the .net project page at
