[geeklog-devel] Geeklog 2.0.0b2 Questions

Do you plan on checking out the Postgres statements then?

I almost think it is not worth it since no one expressed any interest ... I
rather spend my time on bugs and new features.

For Geeklog 2.0.0 should we just leave all the mssql and pgsql statements in
place or should we ripe it out?

I actually tried looking into the Postgres issues, but an upgrade to my
Linux box broke the Postgres install there. Haven't had the time to start
over with a fresh Postgres install.

I don't know the state of the MS SQL support, but I would assume it's

We probably have to ask ourselves what the point of these two is. We say we
support MS SQL and Postgres, but nobody's really using or even testing them.
Postgres at least seems to be broken in 1.8.1 as well[1].

There was a certain need for Postgres, back when MySQL ended up at Oracle
and people were unsure if it would survive in its current form. These days,
there are alternatives like MariaDB (on which I'm running Geeklog locally),
so the pressure is gone. I would hate to lose Postgres but realistically, if
nobody is here to really look after it - what's the point? Same with MS SQL,
although I guess the number of potential users there is even lower.

bye, Dirk
