Is Postgres Support Dead?

posted by Cliff on 01:30 PM March 1st, 2004   Printer-friendly   Email story
A not-so Anonymous reader would like to know about the following: "I really would like to have an offical statement about postgres support. The FreeBSD port states 'PostgreSQL support is already well on its way.' The last statement on Slashcode states that 'its going nowhere'. Is this offical? I use Postgres and only use Mysql for Slashcode." The Postgres module lies untouched, and has been that way for a real long time, therefore I think it might be safe to assume that no direct support from the core developers is expected. I can see why they may not have the time, being as they have several sites like Slashdot, NewsForge, and others that need their love and care. It should be mentioned however, that Slash is still Open Source Software, so if someone wants to revive work on the module, please feel free. Remember, if you want help, there's always the Slashcode-Development Mailing List, and a legion of Slashcode developers who might be interested in testing and/or writing code! So is Postgres support dead? I leave the answer to that question up to you.
