I don't recall that anyone agreed to do anything in particular, let alone the process being formalized thus. Bruce was looking for there to be some form of overview of the free replication options so he'd have some kind of tale to tell about it. Apparently the issue comes up fairly frequently. 1. I posted information on pgsql-docs 1.a. I solicited comments 2. There being not many of those, I have put together something that could fit into the documentation. I frankly don't care all that much where the material goes; if it ought to be some place else other than in the documentation tree proper, I'm fine with that. -- select 'cbbrowne' || '@' || 'gmail.com'; http://linuxdatabases.info/info/postgresql.html "How much more helpful could I be than to provide you with the appropriate e-mail address?
