It is my thinking that regardless of commercial backing that the
PostgreSQL project as a whole would gain better validity
within the commercial world if we maintained releases longer.
It is really irrelevant whether somebody pays me or you 500.00 buck to
make a patch and submit it to the tree. What is
relevant IMHO is that the community is backing a release for longer than
Yes a commercial company could just pick it up and say ... hey we will
support it for x (Mammoth 7.3.4 is supported until 2005 for example)
but I was more looking at this from an overall community perspective.
