OT: Update on the Fourth International NoCOUG SQL Challenge (Part I)

Update on the Fourth International NoCOUG SQL Challenge in progress at https://nocoug.wordpress.com/2015/05/11/fourth-international-nocoug-sql-challenge.

The previous NoCOUG SQL challenges (First, Second, Third) were about devising clever algorithms and then trying to code them in a language (SQL) that was not designed for implementing algorithms. The fourth challenge is more about translating a functional specification into relational algebra or calculus  so it’s closer to what SQL is all about.
