You know, I expect that sort of FUD from commercial enterprises that have
something to gain by switching people to their product. I am especially
disapointed to see this from you, Gerhard, after the contributions that you
have made to PygreSQL in the past.
By the way, the main reason that we moved PyGreSQL out of the main source tree
was that we could not add PyGreSQL developers to the tree without getting
them full access to the PostgreSQL tree. This move, which was fully
supported by the rest of the PostgreSQL team, was made to allow PoPy
developers in particular to have direct CVS access to the PyGreSQL tree so
that we could try to de-splinter the PostgreSQL/Python community. Given your
support in the past you would also have been welcome as a member of that
team, something I was not previously able to offer. Even so, I have always
folded your patches in. You are even mentioned on the web site as a
contributor to the 3.2 release.
PyGreSQL is far from dead. There will soon be a new web site and we will be
putting out a new version soon. Meanwhile, the CVS repository is publicly
available and the current version works quite well with the current version
of PostgreSQL. Don't write us off just yet.
