IIRC, this thread woke up on someone complaining about PostgreSQl inc
promising 
to release some code for replication in mid-october and asking for
confirmation 
that this is just a schedule slip and that the project is still going on
and 
going to be released as open source.

What seems to be the answer is: "NO, we will keep the replication code
proprietary".

I have not seen this answer myself, but i've got this impression from
the contents 
of the whole discussion.

Do you know if this is the case ?
