There are very varied interests in this community.  But you have to keep
in mind that PostgreSQL is a production software package, not a research
platform.  This doesn't mean that we discourage research with the
PostgreSQL code base.  But that should be done in a fork.  Code aimed
for inclusion in a proper PostgreSQL release should have demonstrable
real life use and should be developed according to certain standards and
in close corporation with the community.  If a research project can deal
with that, great, but typically, research projects are there to
determine whether something could have real-life value in the first
place, and development follows different standards of quality.
