This was said by me on IRC today:
- You say ‘ignoring a large user base’ as if there is something wrong with that.
- PostgreSQL has a long history of not catering to the masses. This is what makes it such a great tool.
- Only well thought out and well conceived features go into PostgreSQL.
And someone else said: those 3 statements should be carved to stone :)
Later, I added:
- Features get added because the *coder* wants to do them. And the coder doesn’t get to do them unless the rest of the team thinks it is being done well.
