The SQL standard: Where does it come from? Where does it go?
For most of the existence of the PostgreSQL project, the SQL standard was treated as something that was mysteriously thrown over the fence every few years. No longer: PostgreSQL community members including myself have been involved in the development of the SQL standard for a few years now, and I can shed some light on the process.
We have also gotten a new version of the SQL standard earlier this year, so in time for PostgreSQL 16. I will show what is new, where PostgreSQL stands, and what is planned for future versions.
