I've read some mails about recent patches to make middlekit work with
pgsql. How can I install and use these patches?
Can I help in any way to test or develop it?
I'm really in need of the PostgreSQL support, and I'm willing to help build it.
Thanks in advance,

Thanks for asking. Last year I did some work with PostgreSQL and
MiddleKit, and had lots of local changes which I've been meaning to commit.
Specifically, I made it so that for each table, a corresponding postgres
sequence is created, which is used for getting the next serial number
when an object is added to the data store. There were a bunch of other
changes, too, but that was the most significant.
There are several different python bindings for PostgreSQL, but AFAICT
there are only two which are maintained: the bindings included with
PostgreSQL itself, and psycopg. I can't remember exactly why, but at that
time I had some problems with PostgreSQL's bindings, and so I used pscyopg.
I've just checked in these changes, so please do a fresh CVS checkout (it
may take a few hours to become available on sourceforge's anon CVS, I'm not
sure) and take a look. Since I haven't really used it since last year,
there might be a few things which aren't working any more (due to other
changes in MK), and I think there are a few MK datatypes which still need to
be implemented for PostgreSQL (i.e. datetime?).
If you improve the support further, please submit patches via sourceforge,
and maybe send me a heads-up, too, so that I notice. :)
