Postgres detection via Avahi?

I don’t have much time for coding right now, but I can still abuse my blog to suggest fun stuff for others to do. Then I can put the results together when I’m free again at the end of September.

I’d love if it someone patched Postgres to announce itself over the network with Avahi. Then Glom wouldn’t need to ask anyone for a hostname – they could just choose a server from a list, with a good default. Postgres already uses Bonjour when running on MacOS, so some stuff must already be there.

  1. avahi ships a bonjour compatiblity layer. Hence it probably requires only minor tweaking of the postgresql build options to enable support for zeroconf on top of avahi.
