All,

Following some public and not so public discussion a little while back, 
I decided to ask a group of people to help me to create an 
experimental tracker instance for bugs and possibly features, to assist 
our development efforts. The people I chose were some I have worked with 
before, e.g. on the buildfarm, or who had expressed general support for 
the idea, and who I thought could usefully contribute to such a project. 
The idea is to run this for one release cycle, at the end of which time 
we should have enough experience to know if it could help or hinder our efforts.

At the moment we are still discussing both scope and software 
candidates, and exploring a couple of candidates.

There is no intention to be secret, but we also don't want to be 
endlessly debating possible merits, which has been an unfortunate 
characteristic of several discussions over the years. Rather, we want to 
demonstrate what we believe to be the benefits, as clearly and directly 
as possible, by actual use.

We currently have a project on pgfoundry, including a mailing list, at 
http://pgfoundry.org/projects/tracker/ and a wiki at 
http://www.kaltenbrunner.cc/wiki/index.php/Pgtracker:evaluation

Anyone who is interested in contributing is welcome to join in, 
especially if they have a history of involvement in PostgreSQL 
development. 


cheers

andrew
