Sorry, we did not get enough feedback to include this in 8.2.  Please
add it to pgfoundry and let's see how it goes.

Yep... it's too bad.  A new feature no other database has now goes to
it's final resting place on pgfoundry.


Jonah,

this is inaccurate, irresponsible and insulting to those of us who spend time maintaining pgfoundry. It is not a graveyard. Plenty of stuff outside the core gets included in packaged distributions - just see for example what goes into the Windows distro, or the packages that CP distributes.

The implication of your statement is that anything not accepted into the core is automatically somehow considered unworthy. Please refer to Tom's recent remarks about playing on extensibility as one of our strengths.

My impression (please correct me if I'm wrong) is that proper full disjunction support would include grammar support, in which case contrib is not where it should belong anyway. If that's so, then the next step would be for somebody to pick up the work that Tzahi has done and take it the rest of the way. That would be a worth goal for 8.3.

cheers

andrew
