That will send a fine message to those companies that have sponsored development work - that we will arbitrarily reject large patches that have been worked on following the procedures that we require. We must at least have the solid belief (of a committer that that has done a proper review) that a patch cannot be polished in an appropriate timeframe, or another justifiable reason for rejecting rather than vague handwaving, guesswork and estimates based on email traffic. If we do not, we will rapidly find that no company wants to sponsor features for PostgreSQL in the future for fear that their money will be wasted even if they jump through all the right hoops. -- Dave Page EnterpriseDB UK: http://www.enterprisedb.com -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
