Re: Bug#453434: ITP: pgloader -- loads flat data files into PostgreSQL


Sorry about bad filled report, it was my first attempt to use reportbug (after 
a failure of M-x debian-bug-intend-to-package). In fact I'm the main 
developer of the tool (pgloader), made the packaging and already am in touch 
with a debian developper for sponsorship!

First to enter debian will be 2.2.5~dev-1, or 2.2.5 if ready by the time I get 
the packaging completely right :)

Dimitri Fontaine <dim@tapoueh.org>, as in --email option and subsequent 
rebortbug screens.

The URL where it is available to download is the following:

Fair enough, will shorten the long description entry from debian/control.

Thanks for reviewing this ITP,

I decry the current  tendency to seek  patents on algorithms.    There
are better ways to  earn a living  than to  prevent other  people from
making use of one's contributions to computer science.
