PostgreSQL CommitFest 2019-03 Ends

PostgreSQL has a very unique way to review the code submitted by developers. Most open source software uses Github pull requests to accommodate users’ code.

Many years ago, PostgreSQL introduced CommitFest to manage its patches, where postgres opens for a three to four month “festival” to accept patches. The CommitFest is set up to keep track of patches’ statuses. In practice, CommitFest is mainly an admin page used to manage patches.
