I think that's a big part of the problem. It's hard to get excited about
something if you don't know what's happening.

Even if you can't share drafts, would it be possible to give a summary
of things that are being discussed in the committee? That way if there's
people in the community with interests in particular topics, they could
contact you and get involved.

I could join such a mailing list if you create one, but it would
probably be better if specific topics could be discussed on
pgsql-hackers. Perhaps this is something you should bring up in the
committee. I understand that the committee doesn't want to open its work
to the whole world, but I also don't see why work-in-progress features
couldn't be discussed in the public.
FWIW, I'm very glad you're on the committee! Even though I have no idea
what's going on there, it gives me a warm feeling that there's someone
on the committee who knows PostgreSQL. If someone proposes something
that would hurt PostgreSQL, like syntax that we already use for
something else, I know you're going to speak up.
