|[eclipselink-dev] PostgreSQL JDBC driver|
Hi, I have a request which has nothing to do with Eclipse Link directly, but I thought here are the people with the best connections for this. For the Eclipse SCADA project, we would like to include the PostgreSQL JDBC driver in our download. This is not possible at the moment, since any CQ for it was rejected. Here the list of past CQs: CQ 1725 - PostgreSQL Version: 8.2.506 - Rejected CQ 4239 - PostgreSQL Version: 8 - Closed (was not approved) CQ 15 - PostgreSQL Driver updated to 8.1-4078.0.311- Rejected CQ 3375 - Postgresql Version: 8 - Approved as a Workswith Dependency Only CQ 6124 - org.postgresql Version: 9.1.901 - Withdrawn (was not approved) The reason for it is that PostgreSQL has not contribution policy in place, which is a prerequisite for any approval. Then all the committers have to certify that their code is clean of all 3rd-party claims. This is of course a lot of work, so I understand that the PostgreSQL JDBC guys are hesitant to do anything about it. I talked with Dave Cramer, the current lead developer (for the JDBC driver) about it. He in turn will talk to some other people from the PostgreSQL community, but I somehow sense that they wont see the need for it. Maybe some people from the Eclipse foundation with more clout than me, can talk to the relevant people on the PostgreSQL side and carefully nag them a bit. I think a number of other Eclipse projects would like to include the JDBC driver in their distributions as well . best regards Jürgen -- IBH SYSTEMS GmbH D 85235 Pfaffenhofen an der Glonn Läutenring 43 Geschäftsführer / CEO: Dr. Thomas Heitzig Amtsgericht München Handelsregister Nummer HRB 197959 USt ID: DE267945175 Office Munich D 80992 München Agnes-Pockels-Bogen 1 T +49 89 18 9 17 49 0 The information transmitted is intended only for the person or entity to which it is addressed and may contain confidential and/or pivileged material.
