Would someone who's been using PostgreSQL for production use like to do
some advocating in the Yoga (or Gnuotes) project?

Yoga is a project meant to build a Notes killer.

The general feeling seems to be to use SleepyCat DB, which I've never
heard about before. The Web Page tells that it's in reality Berkeley DB,
a very simple file construction, not at all what I consider a database.
Back when I programmed Cobol, it was just indexed files...

I think the main problem is that people doesn't know how far PostgreSQL
has come. In my eyes, the only thing missing could be hot backup, but I
don't know for sure. Also there's the question of reliability (up time).

Personnally, I'm not sure how PostgreSQL will handle documents (that's
what Notes / Yoga is about), as I believe that BLOBS are poorly
supported, but perhaps the developers of PostgreSQL would accomodate
Yoga in this matter.

A big problem for SleepyCat is in my eyes that it doesn't support SQL at

Yoga can be found here:

directly to me)
