Folks,

The Commitfest for September, 2010, will start in just a couple of
days, and you can help make it successful!

The first way is to volunteer for patch-chasing, as Selena, Stephen
and Brendan did this time last year.  Kudos and huge thanks to all of
them.

Patch-chasers make sure every patch patch comes to some resolution
(Committed, Returned with Feedback, Rejected, etc.) over the course of
the Commitfest.  To this end, patch-chasers gently(!) harp on people
to close those loops.

The next way is to volunteer to review a patch.  It's simpler to start
than you might imagine.  The first things to review are these two:

    http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/Reviewing_a_Patch
    http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/RRReviewers

You'll also want to read the classic work by Josh Tolley:

    http://wiki.postgresql.org/images/5/58/11_eggyknap-patch-review.pdf

If you're on RRR and participate again, speak up on the list.  If
you're not on RRR yet and wish to be, sign up, and *then* speak up.

There are a *lot* of patches already, and will almost certainly be a
few at the last minute, so have a look for ones that interest you and
start eliminating those nasty red "Nobody" entries in the Reviewers
column.

Let's make 5771[1] PostgreSQL's best year yet!

Cheers,
David.

[1] That's the Jewish year just begun.
