[Pkg-postgresql-public] Bug#772047: RFH: pgpool2 -- connection pool server and replication proxy for PostgreSQL

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the pgpool2 package in the
PostgreSQL team. I'm not using the package myself - someone with more
experience in actually running pgpool2 would be welcome to take care
of getting the more advanced features (e.g. memcached support) into

The package description is:
 pgpool-II is a middleware that works between PostgreSQL servers and a
 PostgreSQL database client. It provides the following features:
  * Connection Pooling
  * Replication
  * Load Balance
  * Limiting Exceeding Connections
  * Parallel Query
 pgpool-II talks PostgreSQL's backend and frontend protocol, and relays a
 connection between them. Therefore, a database application (frontend) thinks
 that pgpool-II is the actual PostgreSQL server, and the server (backend) sees
 pgpool-II as one of its clients. Because pgpool-II is transparent to both the
 server and the client, an existing database application can be used with
 pgpool-II almost without a change to its sources.
 This is version 3 of pgpool-II, the second generation of pgpool.

If you are interested, please let me or the PostgreSQL packages
mailing list know.
