#4447 ✓stale

Column.simplified_type defaults

Reported by garrett | April 21st, 2010 @ 09:07 AM

Hi all

This relates over to ticket #4270 where I've submitted a small patch to correct behavior on PostGIS for two additional column types. (geometry and geography)

But I wanted to also bring up that by default, if the Column doesn't have a type match it just throws back a nil. Is there a reason for no else at the end of the case statement as a measure of last resort?

In my case (and I would hazard to guess in a lot of others) defaulting to :string would solve the problem.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help.

This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
