Midsummer

Midsummer coming up tomorrow, which means no PostgreSQL hacking for me for a couple of days. (Don't know what midsummer actually means? Visit Sweden for it once, and you'll know..) Once it's over, it's just a couple of days left to the feature freeze...

I got hold of Palle regarding the ICU patch, and it looks like it'll be ready in time for the freeze. Minor things left, and then I'll have to fix up the win32 build issues (which [HTML_REMOVED]can[HTML_REMOVED] be done, as I've done it hackishly before).

The issues of SIGTERM-to-a-backend are back up for discussion. Unsurprisingly, my very hackish idea for a pg_terminate_backend() function based on a flag in shared memory is not going in. Let's just hope that Tom (or someone else, but I'll bet it's going to be Tom eventually) figures out what's bad with the current behaviour (as lock table corruption has been reported) and can get a proper fix in before 8.1.

And I'll not even get into the discussion about the server instrumentation functions at this time...

As for the rest of the open items, I have no idea.. There's a lot of good stuff there, I hope it all gets in.

Happy Midsummer!
