How to Get Your PostgreSQL Patch Accepted

patch submission accepted

This talk will cover the intricacies of getting your patch accepted by the PostgreSQL community and included in the next software release.

Developing a patch for the PostgreSQL community is a fairly complex process. There are many ways a patch can fail, and only a few ways it can succeed. Many people have been through the patch submission process and learned what it takes to make a successful patch. This talk will cover many of the gotchas that lead to a patch being rejected in the hope that attendees will have more success in submitting patches in the future.
