I second that, if Barry volunteers of course.

I'm not sure if I qualify, since I haven't been around very
long, but I'll be glad to help out if volunteers are needed.

I'm under the impression that JDBC receives more ad hoc patches
from relative newcomers than the backend does. Therefore, I
propose to follow a peer review procedure for applying patches
to JDBC:

1) Every patch must be reviewable. It should be a clean diff and
it must contain a clear description of the problem that's being
solved, the reason for certain changes, JDBC compliance etc.

2) Every non-trivial patch should receive a positive
recommendation from at least one person of a team of certified
reviewers before it is applied. The review process (e.g. Q&A
between reviewer and developer, approve/reject) occurs on the
pgsql-jdbc list.

This is already happening with a lot of patches, but I think it
would be good to turn this practice into an official and
documented procedure.
