We're so close I can almost taste it ... Here are the open tasks I can see, does anyone have others?
* Review the one remaining patch from Simon that's on Bruce's patch queue page http://momjian.us/cgi-bin/pgpatches (Everything else on that page is either dealt with, mentioned explicitly below, or simply a documentation improvement issue, which need not hold up beta1.) * Deal with the "#define FRONTEND" issue that Hiroshi Saito is working on (see "Warning is adjusted of pgbench" thread). * Decide whether we need to change CSVLOG output to emit virtual XIDs instead of, or perhaps in addition to, regular XIDs. I'm of the opinion that this has to happen, but there didn't seem much enthusiasm for it elsewhere. * Pending patches for pre-existing bugs in contrib/pgcrypto --- this doesn't seem like a beta-stopper anyway. * What are we going to do with contrib/tsearch2? Probably not a beta stopper either, but it needs to be decided. * Do we bump the .so major version number for libpq? I think we should because there are two new exported functions since 8.2, and on at least some platforms there's nothing else than major number to disambiguate whether a client needs these or not. Comments? * Draft release notes --- can't really ship a beta without these, else beta testers won't know what to test. Traditionally this has taken a fair amount of time, but I wonder whether we couldn't use http://developer.postgresql.org/index.php/WhatsNew83 for at least the first cut. I think we could possibly release 8.3beta1 on Monday, or certainly next week sometime. And I don't know about anyone else, but I'm antsy to get this thing out the door ... regards, tom lane ---------------------------(end of broadcast)--------------------------- TIP 1: if posting/reading through Usenet, please send an appropriate subscribe-nomail command to [EMAIL PROTECTED] so that your message can get through to the mailing list cleanly
