Here is a quote of exactly what I had to ask for, which I shouldn't have
had to ask for:
What I did want to hear is a layout of how the system would work,
and an exchange of ideas until almost everyone was happy.
Also, I saw the trigger patch with no explaination of why it was
important or who would use it --- that also isn't going to fly
So, to add something, the community needs to hear how it is going to
help users, because every code addition has cost, and we don't want to
add things unless it has general utility. If someone can't explain the
utility of an addition, I question whether the person has fully thought
through were they are going.
Not sure where you got the "complete functional specification of a
multimaster replication system".
I go back to my original question, do you understand the process that
has to be followed for patch submission/application, and that it applies
to all of us, including you? A simple "yes" is all I need to hear.
