I had almost given the idea away until a poster raised the issue that
he could not really use a database module which the developer did not
consider a serious development project (or words to that effect).
For people who are of a like mind - for release 0.30 and later we are
going to offer commercial support. This should do a number things:
1- Convince potential users that we do take development and support for
the module seriously.
2- Provide us with a little bit of compensation for what we would
probably do anyway. If an income stream can be derived from the
module then additional features and bugfixes become a higher
priority relative to other tasks which do not generate a cash flow.
3- If you work for an organisation which has a policy of only using
software which is commercially supported - you will soon have the
option of using the Sybase module.
The terms and cost of the support contract have not been decided
