Hum, are you going to put back the original cruft to support copy view?
I suggest you don't do that.

There is a "core", there are committers, there are "major developers",
and there are "contributors".  This is documented in the developer's
page on the website, though the committers group is not documented
anywhere.  (Most, but not all, of Core are also committers.  Some Major
Developers are committers as well).

There is no committee.  The closer you get to that, is people vocal
enough on pgsql-hackers.
