[postgis-users] A little freelance job to write a postgis function to cut a compass corner off a polygon

I need some functionality that I think is best put into a function, probably in pgsql.  This has been on the todo list for years, but since I can't seem to get to it, maybe one of you would like to help out. I don't think it should take long for someone who has the skills. I'd really appreciate the help.

You obviously need to have some experience writing postgis functions. The function would divide up a polygon by cutting off one of the compass corners using east-west and north-south lines. I think you'll have to use a bisection method to find the correct position of one of the lines, as the area (rather than the extent) of the corner-section to be cut off will be specified as a function parameter.  

I wrote down the planned algorithm and threw it on upwork here https://www.upwork.com/jobs/~01b6948ce256e51f85 <https://www.upwork.com/jobs/~01b6948ce256e51f85>  (I'm not sure whether upwork is the best platform to ask for postgis freelance work, let me know if you have other ideas.)

Hope someone can help,
