Will support contracts end? Will people run into new problems and be stuck without help when this happens? Just curious to see what happens.

Unlike my first year of using RethinkDB, during the last six months, my RethinkDB cluster has been rock solid stable and I have NOT hit a single noticeable issue. It seems like the last "the devil is in the details" bugs got ironed out a few months ago. So fortunately there is no pressing need to make a decision. My plan is to do what I can to support the open source project, and if it takes up, stick with RethinkDB longterm. If the open source project does not take off within a year, I will probably spend about 2-3 months fulltime (my estimate) to rewrite SMC to use Postgresql and RabbitMQ. Anyway, that's my plan. After this experience, I personally can't imagine rebuilding everything on top of a database that is substantially less proven than Postgresql.
