For some reason the IT department at work blocked the translation link you provided. Strangely enough, they didn't block it when I changed .cz to .com. In the one below I've also changed host language from hl=cs to hl=en.http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=cs&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fpostgres.cz%2Fwiki%2FHistorie_projektu_PostgreSQL

@Mr. Muskrat Thank you, link updated
Very interesting. Some corrections:The date of the ASK acquisition/merger with Ingres should be 1990 (IIRC) not 1999.Footnote 11: the translation of SQL to QUEL was only for Ingres 5.0 (circa 1986). Ingres 6.0 (circa 1988) used native SQL.The Ingres optimizer was written by Bob Kooi (not Coye) ("kooi" is still in the source history comments). Bob was replaced by at least two people (Teresa (?) Seputis, before CA) and Doug Inkster (after CA).The renamed Ingres Corp is Actian.
A correction to my earlier comment: Seputis was named Ed (Edwin) [there was a Teresa Seputis also but (to my knowledge she didn't work on the optimizer).
This is cool!
