FAQ

There were a couple of rejected sections in the patch, but they were
easily applied by hand. If wanted, I can chuck a copy of the diff vs. 7.0
on an ftp site, or post it to this list.
Ryan has graduated college (in top of class, btw) and and claims to
have lots of free time coming up to work on Alpha patches. Y'all may
want to coordinate on generating and testing some patches for 7.0. But
a good starting point would be to post some patches from your tree.

Tom Lane is planning a fmgr rewrite that will (hopefully) make these
patches obsolete and unnecessary, but that won't be available until
the next full release in a few months. So solid patches will be a
benefit in the meantime.

Regards.

    I'm happy to help test, although my databases tend to be rather simple.

    I've put the patch up at:

    ftp://ftp.wibble.net/pub/stuff/postgresql-7.0-alpha.patch.gz

    It's identical to RKs beta5 patch, but cleaned up to apply properly to
    the 7.0 release.

    Regards,
    Nic.

    Lamar, is that enough to get you going on a .src.rpm supporting alpha?
    Someone can test a binary after that...
