Hi Bruno,

Within Autodesk we have started a PostGIS Provider evaluation process to try and determine the scope of the changes that will be required to make the provider usable is products such as AutoCAD Map and AutoCAD MapGuide. Once the evaluation is complete, we will forward the results to you.

I'd like to thank you so much for helping in development of the PostGIS
provider. That's fantastic. If there is anything unclear or you will
need assistance regarding current codebase of the PostGIS provider,
please don't hesitate to contact me directly (Skype: mloskot)
or here on the list (though I'm not reading it carefully ATM).

This is low-priority task and I think I'm the only one who can fix it.

This ticket is about inventing a way to detect and report low-level
problems like missing missing columns or missing postgis installation,
etc. in user-friendly way.

I'm not sure about this one too.
Jason, I'm not sure what does the "not available for display as
properties" mean. Where is the "display"? Display as label or some
MapGuide widgest/boxes, or in MapStudio?

Bruno, I'm very thankful for your contributions!
I'll be back to the PostGIS provider development as soon as I have my
study issues done, hopefully within a few weeks.
