Правила размещения новостей, событий и разного рода pgsql-объявлений на первой странице PostgreSQL.org

Общие правила

Домашняя страница www.postgresql.org содержит списки Новостей и Событий, которые составляются только на благо сообщества PostgreSQL.

Все Новости и События (включая Учебные Мероприятия) должны размещаться в соответствии со следующей информацией:

  • Точная информацию о контактах
  • Описание заголовка, которое отличает статью от подобных статей
  • От 10 до 25 слов в кратком описании статьи, которое предоставит достаточно информации для того, чтобы ясно дать знать читателям RSS, хотят ли они больше информации из статьи.
  • Описание новости или события, которое чётко объясняет, что это такое и какое оно имеет отношение к PostgreSQL.

Другие общие правила включают в себя:

  • Все статьи должны быть связаны с PostgreSQL каким либо прямым и очевидным способом.
  • Ссылка размещается только в случае если события или новости никогда не будут приемлемыми.
  • Группа администраторов WWW проекта PostgreSQL может навсегда запретить любую структуру, которая является причиной обоснованных жалоб о точности, этики и законности от участников нашего общества.
  • WWW team не даёт никаких обещаний о своевременном размещении объявлений. Если публикации в конкретный день имеет решающее для вас значение, то вам необходимо связаться со списком рассылки pgsql-www или участником core team заранее.
  • Компаниям, находящимся в списке на странице спонсоров, может быть предоставлено исключение в любом из ограничений на новости и события, например, по усмотрению WWW team, разрешается чаще размещать сообщения.

В основном, домашняя страница PostgreSQL.org работает в исключительно бескорыстных целях участников сообщества PostgreSQL. Это не место для рекламы, и администраторы сайта имеют право отказаться от любого уведомления, если они посчитают его не соответствующим потребностям сообщества по любой причине или без причины.

Размещение Новостей и Объявлений

All News policy below is considered to apply equally to the home page and pgsql-announce, except that pgsql-announce also carries PWN.

PostgreSQL Core News

All items will be approved unless inaccurate. The following types of news are generally appropriate for the home page:

  • All releases, major, minor and beta
  • Development schedule milestones
  • New certifications, awards & benchmarks
  • Core team and committer changes
  • Security issues
  • Calls for assistance/participation
  • Major changes to infrastructure, web, or legal structure of PostgreSQL
  • Major new advocacy efforts

PostgreSQL "Family" News

This includes news about PostgreSQL add-on projects & drivers, open source projects which are primarily based on PostgreSQL, and news about PostgreSQL regional and user groups.

Any of the following items will be approved, regardless of frequency:

  • Any release or initial beta of a major release
  • Creation of any new user group, regional group, or web site
  • Critical security patch announcements
  • Substantial new articles or documentation
  • Infrequent calls for assistance/participation

Other types of news, such as changes in leadership, will not be approved.

Proprietary & External OSS Project News

This includes all news from companies whose products contain, support or are based on PostgreSQL, and OSS projects which support PostgreSQL as one of several database options.

The following types of news will be approved:

  • Brand new products/projects/services which support or center around PostgreSQL
  • Newly released books about PostgreSQL or with substantial (20% or more) PostgreSQL content.
  • First support of PostgreSQL in existing products
  • Major version releases (not more than once per quarter)
  • Critical security updates, if thought to affect many PostgreSQL community members

Other types of announcements, including minor releases, pricing changes, leadership changes, 3rd-party news coverage, partnerships, and mergers & acquisitions will be rejected.

In addition, commercial entities who are not financial, in-kind or code contributors to the PostgreSQL project will be restricted to one news item of any kind per six-month period.

Procedure for Approving pgsql-announce

Since pgsql-announce goes to over 30,000 addresses, we are cautious in what we approve to that list. In some cases, this may result in a delay of up to several days in approving announcements.

  1. Check if it's spam and reject spam.
  2. Read the announcement
  3. Consider if the announcement meets this policy and is appropriate for announcement
    • if necessary, check on pgsql-www list
  4. Approve or Reject

In any case where an approver has doubts about whether to approve an announcement or not, they should err on the side of caution.

Approving Events and Event-Related News (excluding training)

Events must have significant PostgreSQL-related content in order to be listed.

PostgreSQL Conferences & Events

Any semi-annual or less frequent non-training event which is primarily about PostgreSQL or for PostgreSQL users will be entitled to be listed. Additionally, conferences which are primarily or entirely about PostgreSQL will be entitled to post news items at the following milestones, if they are each a week or more apart: Call for Papers, Registration Opening, Registration Closing, and Wrap-up.

Routine monthly PostgreSQL User Group meetings will not be listed. First meetings of a new PUG can be listed, as well as infrequent major special events likely to be of interest outside of the PUG's normal area.

Open Source & Database Conferences & Events

Open source conferences, and database conferences, which are not primarily about PostgreSQL but have significant PostgreSQL content, such as several sessions and a booth, may be listed in the Events. Additionally, the Call For Papers for these events may be accepted as News.

More routine events, such as monthly local meetings or mini-conferences, will not be listed. Conferences must have significant PostgreSQL content to be worth listing, with decisions on relative significance to be made by the WWW team.

Training Events

PostgreSQL Training may be listed from any company, under the following conditions:

  • Each listing must include:
    • Specific locations and dates for that specific training
    • Link to training registration
    • One or more sentence description of the contents of that specific training

All descriptive text should be purely informative and not include strong marketing copy or special offers unrelated to the training.

In the event that any training company submits more than 4 training events to be held in any given quarter, site admins may (at their discretion) deny posting events to that company.

Rejection Notices

In cases where the submitter appears to have gone to some effort to submit a relevant news item or event, but doesn't understand our policies, we should send them a rejection e-mail linking to this page and explaining what was wrong with their submission. This certainly goes for any of the major project sponsors.

If the submission looks like a 30-second cut-and-paste job, or something else sloppy and quick, or is a submission by someone who has had multiple submissions rejected in the past for the same reason, don't bother sending a response. We get too much spam for that.

Any company which has had submissions repeatedly rejected for the same reasons, and does not correct their errors when notified, risks having their community account suspended and their ability to submit news and events blocked.
