I just reviewed the comments and the page doesn't reflect your
observations. There are 14 (at the time of this writing) comments of
which 11 are feedback and suggestions for improvement to the JTA. We
will review those comments as the JTA closes. We can't change the survey
in the middle of the submission period, it would invalidate the survey.
There are 3 comments pointing out specific problems in submission which
are certainly unfortunate.

I am reviewing this page which you can only get to if logged in:

http://www.postgresqlcertification.org/job_task_analysis

If you are viewing a page that has feedback that is more in line with
your observations please let the project know so we can resolve the
issues.

So far 50% of 400.
