Won't make it?
% OSS options
%At some point, the OSS folks have to admit that they do NOT have a viable OSS database, or they have to continue with their snot-nosed claim that they do have one... and then, basically, fail to deliver on this claim.
%I'm not happy about this. I love PostgreSQL, but it sure doesn't look like it's ever going to be a player, despite glowing OSS press coverage. Without the community support, it won't make it. That's a fact, however unpleasant.
So you're saying the panacea of dbs won't "make it" without community support. What does a piece of OSS software have to do to "make it" -- just because something is better doesn't mean everyone will use it instead of something they are using presently (despite its problems), Linux is like that; I don't see windows users switching en masse to avoid the crashes.
OSS projects don't have to sell things though, they only need a small userbase, developer support, and distribution channels [like www, ftp].
MySQL has its incompatible "features" (extensions) to SQL that lock its users in, since applications requiring a DBM use the MySQL API and its custom extensions (not knowing better, but locking people into it). I think other OSS dbms would be able to gather more users, if applications could be used more painlessly between them all.
Perl's DBI/DBD is great, its ashame other languages don't have db-neutral interfaces like that, and it's ashame that OSS developers write applications on top of flawed databases.

No, it shouldn't. Or why should it?
I see no reason that Freshmeat should be biased to any particular OS.. it is after all, an index of software.
Worthwhile things for any OS should be indexed, and it is good to have appropriate categories.
I agree good to support Agenda. But Unix doesn't deserve any special treatment here IMO.
