And one for Reini for taking up the Postgres yoke, too, please.
Thanks, but that's kind of unfair, since building libming is MUCH harder
than building and testing postgresql on a regular basis. (for about one
month now). The postgresql folks are very knowledgable.
libming needs a complete autotool'izing overhaul, DLL building is
fragile, and has much more supported language extensions than postgres.
Even harder than php and apache.
Sigh. All this for such an unneccessary stupid little package.
A small note to future wannabe package maintainers:
"Never pick a small innocently looking package < 1.0 you might need,
when libtoolized DLL's are wanted and multiple languages
(or just tcl) are involved."
