Your attitude has been lacking about this whole thing, as has a lot of other people. PgFoundry is the official sub project site for PostgreSQL.
That may be the case. However, all I've seen+heard is conjecture that pgfoundry is a good thing; where's the proof? Show me and other fellow "whiners" that a lot of people use pgfoundry and I'll gladly shut up about it.
It is not a graveyard, projects on PgFoundry should receive full advocacy and promotion about their abilities and their linkage PostgreSQL.
See previous email to Andrew regarding projects that don't work with the latest versions of PostgreSQL. I think I've even seen a pgfoundry project last updated for 7.x; that's certainly the case for gborg.
If we spent half as much time promoting and helping the various sub project succeed as we doing whining on this list, we would be far more dominant in the industry then we are.
So, subprojects [pgfoundry] is the source of all industry dominance? I wish I would've known that before :) Sorry, I was itchin' to say it.
I am sick of all the moaning that goes on,
So am I... in general.
When full disjunctons is ready, I am sure it will be considered for core. It currently is not and pgFoundry is the perfect place for until until then.
As it's not a common feature, I don't think many of the hackers know what it is or what it does. Certainly, very few have spoken on this thread. It's odd, only 10 people have commented on this thread; 4 of which are core members, 2 in favor and 2 against. Yet, we're having an argument on why this wasn't included. Unless this is the new math, 2 vs. 2 seems like a tie to me.
We can still promote and announce we have a full disjunctions implementation, just as we can advertise we have full text indexing.
Wherever it ends up, I look forward to seeing the promotion and announcements. Tzahi has put a lot of work into it over the past few months. I'm done on this topic but would gladly appreciate public or private proof regarding pgfoundry's popularity. -- Jonah H.
