pgCon 2013 Unconference Day
The PostgreSQL Community is having our first Unconference Day at pgCon 2013 in Ottawa! This event, sponsored by Salesforce.com, extends pgCon and gives us additional opportunities to share, collaborate, and discuss about PostgreSQL development, hacking, usage, and community.
For more about unconference days and why we're doing this, see the Unconference Day FAQ.
If you are interested in holding a session, or you want someone else to do a session on a particular topic on the Unconference day, please add your proposal to "session ideas" below.

How Sessions are Selected
No predetermined schedule is set for the Unconference Day beforehand. Instead, participants in the Unconference bring their ideas, demands, wishlists and discussion topics, and propose sessions at 10am in MRT 202. Anyone can lead a session. Sessions are accepted by acclaim, and scheduled collaboratively in the first period from 10am to 11am.
In order to get things started quickly on the Unconference Day, participants are encouraged to post session ideas on the wiki, below, before the unconference actually starts.
For more information, see the Unconference Day FAQ
If you wish to lead a session at the Unconference Day, or if you wish someone else would hold one on a specific topic, please propose it below. Copy this template and add your session proposal:

PostgreSQL.org Testing Brainstorming
Proposed By: Josh Berkus
Session Type: Open Discussion
Description: the regression tests and the Buildfarm don't cover anywhere near all the kinds, or scope, of testing we want to do with Postgres, especially during the Beta Testing period. What other kinds of testing could we be doing? How can we increase test coverage? How can we get new contributors involved in testing?

Enhancement of PostgreSQL testing framework
Proposed By: Galy Lee
Session Type: Presentation/Open Discussion
Description: We had enhanced three parts to current PostgreSQL regression test suite, those are: new replication testing framework, kernel testing framework for index/transaction/buffer page module, enhancement of isolation testing framework with synchronization mechanism. I will introduce our works and hope to discuss with the community how to make our testing framework better.
Trigger-Based Replication Brainstorming
Proposed By: Christopher Browne
Session Type: Open Discussion
Description: What are people liking/not liking about Slony, Londiste, Bucardo? What features are not available that would be valuable to have? What backend features would be useful to make implementations better/faster/more reliable?
