Jonah,

Your attitude has been lacking about this whole thing, as has a lot of 
other people. PgFoundry is the official sub project site for PostgreSQL.

It is not a graveyard, projects on PgFoundry should receive full 
advocacy and promotion about their abilities and their linkage PostgreSQL.

If we spent half as much time promoting and helping the various sub 
project succeed as we doing whining on this list, we would be far more 
dominant in the industry then we are.

I am sick of all the moaning that goes on, with this list about -- "oh 
please, we need this in core". It is a crock we have a huge repository 
of PostgreSQL projects that are not in core and this attitude is 
detrimental and negative to all who are involved with those projects.

When full disjunctons is ready, I am sure it will be considered for 
core. It currently is not and pgFoundry is the perfect place for until 
until then.

We can still promote and announce we have a full disjunctions 
implementation, just as we can advertise we have full text indexing.


Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
