Is anyone doing work on the PostgreSQL cookbook?


#1

I started looking at the PostgreSQL cookbook and it looks like it falls short in a few areas, e.g. PostgreSQL 9 support, Foodcritic rules, etc. Is anyone already working on this stuff, or should I dig in?

I also don’t understand why [:postgresql][:dir] is a “set” attribute rather than “default”…?

I’m currently working on backporting (and cleaning up) some of
tunability changes from https://github.com/damm/postgresql, in addition
to cleaning up Stephen Figgins’ changes on COOK-1064. I’m also going to
be contributing some validation for the pg_hba.conf customization in
COOK-1474.

I haven’t been working on the foodcritic issues, but I believe that
Postgres 9 support is working on Ubuntu 11.10+, since the default
postgres changed, though I noticed that Postgres 9 on Red Hat
derivatives appears to be lacking.

The work I’ve been doing is on several branches in
https://github.com/gregsymons/postgresql. Eventually that repository
will be moving to the DrillingInfo organization, but I still need DI’s
fork so that I can get the changes I made on top of damm’s postgres.

Anyway, it looks like you can probably dig in on the foodcritic stuff
and the postgres 9 on Red Hat.
