Hello everybody. What started as a question about "Practical PostgreSQL"
has ballooned into a project to create another documentation resource,
compiled entirely from mailing list archives. While discussing
documentation in the general list I realized that the resource I had
learned the most from and had been the most helpful to me was the
mailing lists themselves. It was from this thought that an idea was born.
What if we compile a book of hand-picked mailing list archives to
address some of the intermediate/advanced and less-used/documented
features of postgresql along with well-written solutions to
Well I've decided to run with it, both to further my own knowledge of
postgreSQL but also to contribute back to the community in the first way
that I thought of. The purpose of this message is a call for help. I'm
looking for anybody willing to help comb the archives for exceptional
excerpts or submit their own list questions/experiences. Anybody willing
to help in any way is more than welcome, but the first (and arguably
most arduous) stage of this project will be the information gathering
itself, hence the plea.
If anybody is interested in contributing, email me at
tomhart(at)coopfed(dot)org and we can go from there.
And of course a big thanks to anybody that takes their time to answer or
assist another person. I don't know about anybody being paid to be here
so our thanks is all the compensation we can offer. Sorry it's not a BMW :-)
