   * maintscripts-functions: Configure manpage alternatives in -doc packages
     using SPI_connect.3.gz as master.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Deprecate krb_srvname in 9.4. Failing upgrade hook

     from server to client still affects upgrades from -9.1 to -9.3. Place the
     upgrade fix here instead of postgresql-9.1.preinst (which does not exist
     any more now). (LP: #1270597)

   * Replace the static logrotate configuration by generating the file
     dynamically using ucf, triggered by watching /usr/sbin/logrotate.
     This eases dist-upgrades that upgrade logrotate to >= 3.8 from an older
     version (squeeze->wheezy, precise->trusty).
   * postgresql-common.postinst: Stop debconf later so ucf can use it.
   * postgresql-common.postinst: Call su without - to avoid a warning.
   * t/003_package_checks.t: Add test case for logrotate.
   * pg_createcluster, t/001_packages.t: Refactor the ssl cert test, and add
     matching testcases in the testsuite.
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Make pipe writes unbuffered.
   * pg_buildext: Document the loop action (present since version 141).
   * pg_buildext: Add "installcheck" action for use with autopkgtest.
   * pg_buildext: Support $action-$version when the loop is contained in the
     calling script. (Mostly useful for installcheck-x.y.)
   * postgresql-server-dev-all: Add "make" to depends because pg_buildext is
     mostly useless without it; extensions using autopkgtest would otherwise
     need to include it in their debian/tests/control files.
   * pgxs_debian_control.mk: Add "clean: debian/control" and
     ".PHONY: debian/control".
   * pg_virtualenv: Fix exit code shown with -s.
   * pg_createcluster, pg_virtualenv: -o will set postgresql.conf parameters.
   * postgresql-common: In /usr/share/postgresql-common/pgdg/,
     install apt.postgresql.org.sh to enable activating the pgdg repository.
   [ Martin Pitt ]
   * testsuite, pg_virtualenv: Don't fail if ifconfig is not installed. We
     don't require it as a dependency, and this breaks e. g. autopkgtests in
     minimal environments.
   * t/150_tsearch_stemming.t: Add tests for stemming/searching with non-ASCII
     characters. (See #689997)
   * debian/postgresql-common.triggers: Also trigger on
     /usr/share/postgresql/, so that installation of new server versions builds
     the corresponding dictionaries.

   * debian/README.Debian: Fix commands to get a postgres user shell.
   * Change all "su" invocations to system user to specify an explicit shell,
     to fix breakage after latest base-passwd 3.5.30 (which changed system

   * debian/postgresql-common.config: Sort versions to determine the latest.
   * pg_buildext: Support "X.Y+" and "all" in debian/pgversions so packages do
     not need to hardcode the versions they support, as that's usually not

     debian/pgversions which would now break "X.Y+".

     locale from the environment, as programs like ssh and sudo propagate
     remote and user locale by default. Instead, only use the locale settings

   * debian/control: Fix duplicate package description. (Closes: #639562)
   * debian/control: Add lsb-release dependency to -server-dev-all, as the
     pg_buildext tool needs it.
   * pg_wrapper: Find libreadline in multiarch directory, too.
     (Closes: #640520)
   * debian/rules: logrotate 3.8.0 requires specifying the "su" option, which
     is not backportable. Dynamically check the available logrotate version,
     and add it if it is >= 3.8. Also dynamically generate a dependency or
     breaks to logrorate 3.8+. (Closes: #640493)
   * PgCommon.pm: Allow '@' characters in LC_CTYPE/LC_COLLATE values. Thanks to
     Willi Mann for the patch. (Closes: #640031)
   * pg_upgradecluster: Print message for running the upgrade.d scripts, thanks
     Karsten Hilbert.
   * t/040_upgrade.t: Add test case for a database with read only default
     transactions. Reproduces #599085.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Set superuser configuration value of
     'default_transaction_read_only' to 'off' during the upgrade, so that
     upgrading databases with read only default transactions actually works.
     Thanks Karsten Hilbert for the suggestion. (Closes: #599085)
   * t/040_upgrade.t, pg_upgradecluster: Consistently use upper case for SQL
   * Correct wrong bug reference in previous changelog.

   * debian/supported-versions: Switch Ubuntu 11.10 to 9.1 (LP: #833684) and
     also preemtively add Ubuntu 12.04 (which will ship with 9.1, too).
   * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2, no changes necessary.
   * debian/rules: Call dh_installinit with -r to avoid restarting on upgrade.
     (Closes: #639140)
   * debian/control: Wrap dependencies.
   * debian/control, debian/rules: Convert from cdbs to dh, and bump
     Standards-Version to 7.
   * debian/control, debian/rules: Build the versionless metapackages from this
     source instead of the current postgresql-X.Y source. This behaves better
     with backports. Thanks to Christoph Berg for the suggestion.
   * debian/postgresql-common.lintian-overrides: Don't complain about missing
     manpage for pg_config, it's shipped by libpq-dev.
   * debian/control: Update description of the metapackages to actually say
     "metapackage" to quiesce lintian.
   * Split POD of pg_buildext into pg_buildext.pod, and update debian/rules to
     build the manpage from there. Fixes lintian "shell syntax failure"
   [ Peter Eisentraut ]
   * pg_createcluster:
     - Use "peer" instead of "ident" on local socket connections from 9.1 on.
     - Apply pg_hba.conf adjustments to replication connections as well.

 postgresql-common (120) unstable; urgency=low
   * PgCommon.pm, cluster_info(): Do not consider external_pid_file
     configuration as valid if it is '(none)'. Fixes test suite regression in
     version 119.
   * debian/supported-versions: Switch to 9.1 as default and testing/unstable
     supported version. This will also cause -server-dev-all to only pull in
   * PgCommon.pm: Partially revert changes for #606336: postmaster does not
     clean up the PID file when it stops, and it is not world readable, so only
     its absence is a definitive result. If the PID file is present, do the
     port probe to check if it is really running.

   * PgCommon.pm, set_conf_value(): Fix the case where a key exists first as a
     commented value, and then uncommented. Add appropriate test cases to
     t/005_PgCommon.t. (Closes: #539651)
   * debian/postgresql-common.postgresql.init: Fix "status" command when some
     clusters are down. (Closes: #635594)
   * pg_upgradecluster: Only call pg_ctl with the -t option with old clusters
     >= 8.4, as earlier versions do not yet support it. (Closes: #633801)
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Remove some obsolete transition
   * architecture.html, cleanpg, debian/init.d-functions, pg_createcluster:
     Remove obsolete references to per-version init scripts. (Closes: #636957)
   * debian/maintscripts-functions: Remove our tsearch data symlinks on
     removal. (Closes: #539611)
   * PgCommon.pm: Make {read,set,disable,replace}_conf_value() case
     independent for *.conf files, as per upstream specification. Add
     appropriate test cases to t/005_PgCommon.t. (Closes: #618577)
   * PgCommon.pm: Make {read,set,disable,replace}_conf_value() accept "key
     value" lines without '=', as this is optional as per upstream
     specification. Add appropriate test cases to t/005_PgCommon.t. Thanks
     to Frederic Junod for the original patch suggestion. (Closes: #618583)
   * PgCommon.pm, cluster_info(): If postgresql.conf defines an external PID
     file, check its existence for determining if a cluster is running, instead
     of poking the port. This is more efficient, and also gives correct results
     for overlapping port numbers. Based on a patch from Jens Wilke, thanks!

   * t/050_encodings.t: Update \' escaping test case for 9.1, as this
     finally has been deprecated.
   * debian/control: Add p-server-dev-all dependency to p-common, so that
     packages that build-dep on it get the pg_config wrapper.

   * Update Dutch debconf translations, thanks Vincent Zweije.

   * Add Catalan debconf translations, thanks Innocent De Marchi.

   * debian/control, debian/rules: Let -server-dev-all depend on all supported
     -server-dev-X.Y packages. (Closes: #624749)
   * Add pg_config wrapper: If postgresql-server-dev-* is installed, this calls
     pg_config from the latest available one. Otherwise this falls back to
     libpq-dev's version. This should fix a common confusion for people who
     want to build e. g. 9.0 server-side extensions with a newer (like 9.1
     beta) libpq-dev installed. In debian/postgresql-common.{preinst,postrm}:
     Divert libpq-dev's /usr/bin/pg_config to pg_config.libpq-dev.
 postgresql-common (116) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/supported-versions: Move Debian testing/unstable and Ubuntu 11.10
     to 9.0.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Revert to the previous encode()/decode() wrapping in
     the "probin" fixup for cluster upgrades from versions < 9.0. Earlier
     versions' replace() function indeed does work on bytea types, not strings,
     so this broke upgrades to 8.4. (Closes: #627227)
   * pg_upgradecluster: Drop all unversioned configuration option transitions,
     which were still from the 7.4 → 8.0 days. These are obsolete, and
     versions >= 96 only support clusters >= 8.1 anyway. In some cases they
     actively break stuff, like inadvertently setting log_statement=all.
     (Closes: #617493)
   * t/060_obsolete_confparams.t: Fix remaining "{,log_}timezone=unknown"
     example configuration files, to also fix upgrade tests for 8.4 → 9.1.
 postgresql-common (115) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add Danish debconf translations, thanks Joe Dalton. (Closes: #619057)
   * debian/README.Devel: Modernize a bit.
   * pg_upgradecluster: In the "probin" fixup, drop the wrapping in
     encode()/decode(). This has been wrong all the time, as the "probin"
     column already is of "text" datatype, and now breaks with 9.1.
   * Add support for 9.1:
     - Add 9.1 configuration method to pg_createcluster.
     - cleanpg: Stop 9.1 clusters.
     - t/040_upgrade.t: Don't call createlang for upgrades from 9.0 on, as
       PL/pgsql is enabled there by default.
     - t/050_encodings.t: Update for changed error message for invalid usage of
       \' in 9.1.
     - t/060_obsolete_confparams.t: Add full configuration for 9.0 to test the
       configuration update to 9.1.
 postgresql-common (114) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/supported-versions: Add Ubuntu 11.04. Drop versions which are newer
     than the ones supported in the released versions, as backports are now
     generally accepted by our .config scripts, but having those newer versions
     confuses pg_buildext.
   * debian/postgresql-common.config: Silence warning from --compare-versions
     when being called through a trigger and $2 is not a version number.
     This works around the underlying dpkg problem. (Closes: #608522)
   * Add debian/postgresql-common.sysctl: sysctl.d/ template for changing
     kernel.shmmax and kernel.shmall, which is very common with PostgreSQL.
     Install it in debian/rules. Thanks to Peter Eisentraut for the suggestion!

   * testsuite: Take new unified init script into account when stopping
     existing clusters. Thanks Steve Beattie! (LP: #712200)
   * pg_wrapper: If libreadline is installed, LD_PRELOAD this for "psql", to
     avoid using the rather broken libedit. We need to build the postgresql-X.Y
     packages against libedit for license reasons (#603599), but as libreadline
     has a drop-in compatible ABI, this works around the licensing
     restrictions. Thanks to Andreas Barth for working this out! Add a
     recommends to libreadline6. (Closes: #608442, #607907, #607109, #611918)
 postgresql-common (113) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Urgency medium, as this is a straightforward bug fix for an important
     upgrade bug.
   * debian/supported-versions: Split testing/squeeze and unstable cases. 9.0
     is not officially supported in Squeeze and testing, it's only available as
     a backport. This will make the "obsolete version installed" debconf note
     point to 8.4 in squeeze, not 9.0. (Closes: #604423)
 postgresql-common (112) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Urgency medium since this fixes an RC bug.
   * debian/changelog: Fix changelog entry in version 111 for #597654: init
     script priority was fixed to S19, not S29.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Also pass additional pg_ctl arguments in "stop" and
     "reload" mode.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Pass correct exit code from pg_ctl in case of errors.
   * PgCommon.pm, get_db_encoding(): Fix uninitialized variable if psql fails.
   * t/040_upgrade.t: Check that pg_upgradecluster exits early and gracefully
     if the old cluster does not stop (usually because there are still active
     connections to it). This reproduces #509050.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Move stopping of old cluster and disabling connections
     to it much ealier, and properly fail without starting the upgrade.
     (Closes: #509050)
   * debian/postgresql-common.preinst: Remove obsolete init script from
     postgresql-8.3 for upgrades from Lenny. It provides "postgresql" which is
     also provided by our common init script, and insserv chokes on this. Our
     common init script handles 8.3 as well and will just take over. Note that
     this is a policy violation, but we can't clean up in -8.3 since that does
     not exist any more in Squeeze. (Closes: #591924)
 postgresql-common (111) unstable; urgency=high
   * Urgency high since this fixes two RC bugs.
   * t/030_errors.t: Check that pg_createcluster leaves the original one intact
     if the cluster already exists, also when the original one is not running.
     This reproduces #597097.
   * pg_createcluster: Be more careful with cleaning up the created cluster if
     an error occurs: Do not start the cleanup until we actually passed our
     sanity checks and created files for the new cluster. Before, it would
     erroneously remove an already existing cluster on a sanity check fail, if
     that cluster happened to not be running at the time. (Closes: #597097)
   * debian/supported-versions: Be more robust against lsb_release failing, e.
     g. in the case where it is not fully configured yet. (Closes: #597561)
   * debian/supported-versions: Drop check for /etc/debian_version if
     lsb_release is not working/existing. Derivatives have debian_version as
     well, and we don't actually evaluate it, so just print a meaningful error
     message and go with the default versions.
   * debian/rules: Put init script priority back to S19/K21 to match the
     previous postgresql-8.4 init script. Fix the priorities on upgrade in
     debian/postgresql-common.preinst. (Closes: #597654)

     directory is not set. This is a rather fatal problem anyway, but we can
     present it in a nicer way. Thanks Christoph Berg! (Closes: #589014)
   * Migrate to a common init script for all server versions, to avoid
     providing the "postgresql" service in multiple packages (which causes
     insserv to complain bitterly):
     - debian/init.d-functions: Add function get_versions() which returns all
       installed versions, but filters out the ones which have their own init
       script. With that, we can run newer common versions with older server
     - debian/maintscripts-functions: Add function stop_version() (to be called
       from "prerm upgrade"), and start cluster in configure_version() if there
       is no version specific init script.
     - Add debian/postgresql-common.postgresql.init: Common init script for all
       installed server versions.
     - debian/rules: Install common init script.

     - pg_createcluster: Clone configure_8_4() as configure_9_0().
     - pg_upgradecluster: Migrate obsolete/changed configuration parameters.
   * pg_wrapper: Fix spelling.
   * In maintainer scripts, instead of "#!/bin/sh -e" use a separate "set -e",
     per lintian.
   * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.4; no changes necessary.
   [ Martin Pitt ]
   * cleanpg: Do not remove the /var/log/postgresql/ directory itself, only its
     contents, to avoid logcheck falling over.
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Do not consider $PG_GRANDPARENT_PID an unsafe
     environment, it's set by 9.0 servers.
   * t/060_obsolete_confparams.t: Add a full configuration for 8.4, so that
     upgrades to 9.0 can be tested.
   * t/052_upgrade_encodings.t: Specify 'C' locale when creating the ASCII
     encoded test database for versions >= 8.4, otherwise we have a
     locale/encoding mismatch.
   * t/TestLib.pm: Abort tests on FAILURE=shell and the shell exits with
     nonzero. This avoids endless followup error shells once it's clear that
     the following ones are doomed anyway.
   * PgCommon.pm: Add new function get_db_locales() which reads lc_ctype and
     lc_locales for a particular database. This replaces the
     get_cluster_locales() function for >= 8.4 server versions (which moved
     from global to per-database locales).
   * pg_upgradecluster: Use get_db_locales() instead of get_cluster_locales()
     for upgrades from >= 8.4.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Drop check for valid locales. We can only determine them
     (using pg_controldata through get_cluster_locales()) for <= 8.3 clusters,
     which are obsolete in sid/lenny. For >= 8.4 clusters, we need to start the
     server to find out the locales, at which point the check is pointless.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Run pg_restore with --disable-triggers when running in
     --data-only mode. (Closes: #579768)
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: We now assume that /var/log/postgresql/ always
     exists, and is writable by the "postgres" user. Thus if we delete the log,
     running "pg_ctlcluster start" should be able to recreate it. This fixes
     the 020_create_sql_remove.t test failure in "umask 077" mode, and uncovers
     some more inconsistencies wrt. log directory permissions.

     this script creates it.
 postgresql-common (106) unstable; urgency=low
   * t/001_packages.t: Check for ".utf8" locale instead of ".UTF-8". This
     seems to be the new canonical spelling now.

     exists. If we remove it entirely, current versions of logcheck complain
     loudly. This was already fixed a while ago in squeeze, this will ensure it
     stays so. (Closes: #576180)
   * t/040_upgrade.t: Check upgrade of database and table ACL, an ALTER
     DATABASE option, and correct upgrading of a custom pg_hba.conf. This
     reproduces #543506.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Rework logic to use "pg_dumpall -s" instead of
     "pg_dumpall -g", to also catch ACLs, global settings, and the like. Drop
     manual database creation and encoding special-cases, since those are being
     taken care of by the -s commands already. (Closes: #543506, #562676)
   * pg_upgradecluster: Re-enable connections after the upgrade is done, not in
   * t/120_pg_upgradecluster_scripts.t: Upgrade scripts should not create
     tables in the "init" phase, since they will be overwritten during
     dump/restore. Change the test case to move table changes into the "finish"
     phase, and update documentation in pg_upgradecluster to point out this
     potential problem.

   * pg_updatedicts: Do not create system_<locale>.{affix,dict} symlinks any
     more, but use the actual names that upstream PostgreSQL looks for (without
     system_ prefix). This allows us to drop the system_ lookup patch from
     PostgreSQL. Update t/150_tsearch_stemming.t accordingly and remove the old

     directory, to avoid moving postgresql.conf's group to root (which would
     happen with the previous change).
   * Add t/042_upgrade_tablespaces.t: Test upgrading a cluster with
     tablespaces. Since this is not currently supported (and hard to do in an

     (Closes: #535428)
   * PgCommon.pm: Check environment variable $PG_CLUSTER_CONF_ROOT for an
     alternative configuration root (default: /etc/postgresql/). For
     testing/development purposes you can change this to point to e. g. your
     home directory, so that you can use the postgresql-common tools without
     root privileges. Thanks to Aidan Van Dyk for the suggestion and patch!
   * pg_createcluster: If calling as non-root user, default to effective user
     id for owneruid instead of root. This makes using $PG_CLUSTER_CONF_ROOT
     more convenient.
   * pg_wrapper: Document PG_CLUSTER_CONF_ROOT in the POD.

   * debian/control: Add missing lsb-release dependency (which now ships the
     lsb_release program). (Closes: #520992)
   * Add support for 8.4 (pre-release snapshots for now):
     - debian/supported-versions: Support 8.4 everywhere (for backports).
     - cleanpg: Remove 8.4 clusters.
     - pg_createcluster: Clone configure_8_3() as configure_8_4().
     - t/060_obsolete_confparams.t: Add complete set of 8.3 configuration
       options, to test configuration migration to 8.4.
     - PgCommon.pm, get_cluster_locales(): Bail out if calling on 8.4 or later
       cluster (where locales are not associated to clusters any more).
       PgCommon.pm, get_cluster_databases(): Ignore lines from psql -Atl which
       just describe access permissions.
     - pg_ctlcluster: Only do locales check for <= 8.3 for now.
     - "ident sameuser" does not exist any more in 8.4, just use "ident" from
       8.4 on.
     - pg_createcluster: Do not symlink root.crt if
       /etc/postgresql-common/root.crt does not have actual certificates (just
       the help text), since 8.4 gets royally confused about the dummy one.
     - pg_upgradecluster: Migrate obsolete/changed configuration parameters.
     - t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Fix parsing of psql -Atl output for new 8.4
     - t/030_errors.t: 8.4 now fails on invalid pg_hba.conf, update
     - t/050_encodings.t: Stop using pg_controldata for checking cluster
       encoding. Just check psql -Atl.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Don't call createdb/dropdb with -q; it got dropped in
     8.4 and is not necessary any more with 8.3 either.
   * t/010_defaultport_cluster.t: Ensure that we run the test with
     LC_MESSAGES=C, so that it succeeds in non-English locales, too.
   * t/051_inconsistent_encoding_upgrade.t: Disable if the oldest available
     cluster is 8.3 or newer; the test is not relevant there, and will fail.

     -p/--port/$PGPORT selects the right cluster in the case of multiple
     existing clusters where none runs on the default port. This reproduces

     default port 5432. (Closes: #517527)

     allow Etch backports. This also gets rid of pg_maintenance and
     /etc/cron.d/postgresql-common. (Closes: #425914, #481025)
   * Add debian/postgresql-common.preinst: Remove obsolete conffiles
     (cronjob and /etc/postgresql-common/autovacuum.conf) on upgrade.
   * Drop support for pre-8.1 clusters, together with all hacks and
     workarounds for those. Add Conflicts: to postgresql-{7.4,8.0}, to
     ensure that this version isn't used with ancient servers any more.
   * t/030_errors.t: Check that clusters on the same port can run side
     by side if they are using different Unix socket directories and
     different TCP addresses. This reproduces #514132.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Replace overly harsh port conflict check (which
     broke clusters on the same port, but different Unix/TCP
     namespaces) with a more modest one which just checks conflict on
     the same Unix socket directory. Thanks to Bernd Helmle for the
     patch! (Closes: #514132, #472627)
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Do not call pg_updatedicts with

   * pg_upgradecluster: Re-read configuration file after doing the "syslog" ->
     "redirect_stderr" migration, so that the followup "redirect_stderr" ->

     database whose encoding did not match the server locale. This reproduces
   * pg_upgradecluster: Fix handling of database encodings on upgrade, since
     8.3 now forces DB encodings and server locale to match:
     - With C locale, keep encoding of DBs on upgrade, just as in previous
       versions. (C is compatible with all encodings, and causes lots of string
       functions not to work correctly, but people still use it deliberately.)
     - With other  locales, create the target DB manually with a compatible
       encoding, and call pg_restore in a way to not create the target DB and
       automatically convert encoding.

   * debian/supported-versions: Welcome, version 8.3!
   * pg_createcluster: Add configure_8_3().
   * PgCommon.pm, cluster_info(): 8.3 defaults to 'autovacuum = On' when not
     given, reflect that in the avac_enable return value.
   * t/050_encodings.t: 8.3 onwards refuses to create a cluster with an
     inconsistent locale/encoding combination. Just drop the test case, it does
     not make too much sense anyway.
   * t/090_multicluster.t: Do not rely on output of createdb, call it with -q.
     8.3 behaves differently here.
   * t/060_obsolete_confparams.t: Add full set of 8.2 postgresql.conf options
     for testing upgrades to 8.3.
   * pg_upgradecluster: When upgrading to 8.3, transition changed configuration
     - bgwriter_lru_percent, bgwriter_all_percent, bgwriter_all_maxpages,
       stats_start_collector, and stats_reset_on_server_start: deprecated.
     - redirect_stderr -> logging_collector
     - stats_command_string -> track_activities
     - stats_block_level || stats_row_level -> track_counts
     - Explicitly enable archive_mode when archive_command is set.
 postgresql-common (78) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Only clean up
     /usr/lib/postgresql/dumpall/ on upgrades if it is actually a directory.
     (Closes: #440596)
 postgresql-common (77) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/control: Fix obsolete ${Source-Version}.
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Create fake rotated log files to check that
     they are cleaned up properly.
   * pg_dropcluster: Remove rotated logs, too. (part of #431643)
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Clean up /usr/lib/postgresql/dumpall/
     junk from the Sarge->Etch postgresql transition. This needs to be kept
     until after Lenny's release. (part of #431643)
   * Add debian/postgresql-client-common.postrm: Clean up
     /var/lib/postgresql/.psql_history on purge. Closes: #431643
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Create /var/lib/postgresql/ if it does
     not exist. This should not usually happen, but apparently did anyway.
     (Closes: #438698)
 postgresql-common (76) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Priority medium since this unbreaks client programs like psql in testing.
   * pg_wrapper: Revert changes of version 74 to make this work with taint
     mode. It breaks too many custom setups, and Perl just doesn't allow to
     untaint $PATH bluntly. If you run pg_wrapper from a perl script with taint
     checks enabled, you have to clean $PATH yourself. Closes: #427894
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Check that PL/TCL and PL/TCLu work, so that we
     now have complete test coverage of all four PLs that are shipped with the
     core package.
   * t/001_packages.t: Check that postgresql-pltcl-<version> is installed.
   * PgCommon.pm, get_cluster_socketdir(): Improve error message if data
     directory parent is not readable. Closes: #428698
 postgresql-common (75) unstable; urgency=low
   The "Never run the test suite without 7.4 just because it is deprecated and
   about to be removed" release. Sorry for the trouble.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Partially revert PATH cleansing to make pg_ctl work on 7.4
     again. This can be dropped again once 7.4 is actually removed from the
     archive. Closes: #425594
 postgresql-common (74) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/supported_versions:
     - Match any 4.0* as Debian Etch to get the correct set of supported
       versions. Closes: #420915
     - Add Lenny/unstable: only support 8.2.
     - Add Ubuntu 7.10.
     - Don't fail if the distribution cannot be determined at all, only print
       out a warning.
   * pg_createcluster, pg_ctlcluster, pg_dropcluster, pg_maintenance,
     pg_upgradecluster: Strip down PATH untainting to the absolute minimum, to
     not fall over if e. g. /usr/local/bin is misconfigured to be world
     writable. Closes: #420565
   * pg_wrapper: Make this script work with taint checks enabled. This happens
     in a pretty blunt way, since it does not actually make sense to enforce
     environment variables, etc. It should just not fail when being called from
     a -T perl script. Closes: #422129
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Do not hide failures of the init
     script on restart.
   * debian/postgresql-common.config, debian/postgresql-common.templates:
     Remove the check for an untransitioned postgresql, since it was only
     necessary for the Sarge->Etch upgrade. Update debian/po/*.po.
   * Remove debian/postgresql-common.preinst, we only needed it for the
     "untransitioned" test.
   * debian/control: Move cdbs and debhelper from B-D-I to B-D, since we need
     them for 'clean'.
   * Add debian/postgresql-client-common.lintian: Lintian overrides for 'binary
     without manpage'. The stuff in /usr/bin is just a symlink to pg_wrapper,
     postgresql-client-* ships the actual manpages for those.
 postgresql-common (73) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/postgresql-common.dirs: Ship /var/lib/postgresql again, creating it
     dynamically causes various upgrade failures. Closes: #416146, #416228
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Call adduser with --no-create-home.
     This avoids the 'wrong owner' warning as well.
 postgresql-common (72) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Set default /var/log/postgresql
     permissions to root:postgres 1775. Closes: #410852
   * Update Russian debconf translations. Thanks to Yuriy Talakan'!
     Closes: #414067
   * postgresql-common/debian/postgresql-common.dirs: Remove
     /var/lib/postgresql, so that adduser does not complain about a preexisting
     directory with the wrong owner any more. This also avoids removing the
     home directory of postgres when removing the package. Closes: #415444
 postgresql-common (71) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add Swedish debconf translations. Thanks to Andreas Henriksson!
     Closes: #407865
   * Add Galician debconf translations. Thanks to Jacobo Tarrio!
     Closes: #408121
   * debian/supported-versions: Only 8.2 is supported in Ubuntu 7.04.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Check that $version and $cluster are still defined after
     untainting to avoid confusing (but harmless) error message.
     Closes: #406117
 postgresql-common (70) unstable; urgency=low
   * t/050_encodings: Check that $LC_ALL dominates $LANG on pg_createcluster.
     This reproduces bug #403239.
   * pg_createcluster: If $LC_ALL is defined, fix $LANG to $LC_ALL. Servers
     prior to 8.2 get this wrong and fail over an invalid $LANG even if that is
     dominated by a valid $LC_ALL. Closes: #403239
   * Add Brazilian Portugese debconf translations. Thanks to André Luís Lopes!
     Closes: #403563
   * t/040_upgrade.t: Check that pg_upgradecluster does not have any stderr
     output (such as error messages from pg_restore, the server, or Perl
     warnings). This uncovers #403529.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Do not mangle {hba,ident,external_pid}_file values from
     old postgresql.conf if they do not exist at all. This removes the Perl
     warnings during upgrades from 7.4. Closes: #403529
   * debian/README.Debian: Describe default cluster setup and give an example
     for upgrading a cluster if a newer version with the same name already
 postgresql-common (69) unstable; urgency=medium
   * Urgency medium, only safe fixes and this needs to go into Etch due to
     first bug fix.
   * debian/supported_versions: Gracefully fall back on an unknown
     distribution, instead of failing package installation completely.
     Closes: #400628
   * debian/supported_versions: Some minor factorization.
   * Add Spanish debconf translations, thanks to Javier Fernández-Sanguino
     Peña! Closes: #402198
   * pg_createcluster: Add --locale and the various --lc_* options that initdb
     supports, and mention in POD that directly setting --encoding is not
     recommended. Closes: #395083
   * t/050_encodings.t: Use pg_createcluster's new --locale option in some test
   * Make testsuite work with just one installed major version (mainly boils
     down to disabling upgrade tests).
 postgresql-common (68) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/supported-versions: Add Debian 4.0. Closes: #399978
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Use adduser option --quiet for adding
     postgres to ssl-cert. Closes: #399979
   * pg_createcluster: Enable timestamps in log files by default. Other system
     log files have timestamps, too, and they are useful. Closes: #395554
   * t/040_upgrade.t: Fix number of tests if oldest installed PostgreSQL
     version is < 8.0.
 postgresql-common (67) unstable; urgency=low
   *t/040_upgrade.t: Skip the user/group name clash test when there are only
    servers >= 8.1 installed, since it does not apply to them and breaks the
    test suite.
   * t/040_upgrade.t: Check that the upgraded cluster still works after
     removing the old one, to check for stale paths of configuration files.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Adapt path to configuration files in the target
     cluster, so that they do not refer to the files of the old cluster. (This
     fixes an upgrade regression introduced in version 62).
   * debian/supported-versions: Add Ubuntu 7.04.
   * Add Italian debconf translations. Thanks to Luca Monducci
     <luca.mo@tiscali.it>! Closes: #396947
 postgresql-common (66) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add Japanese debconf translations. Thanks to Hideki Yamane!
     Closes: #393055
   * pg_upgradecluster: Use -X no-data-for-failed-tables only for 8.1. In
     8.2beta2 this got renamed to --no-data-for-failed-tables.
 postgresql-common (65) unstable; urgency=low
   * pg_upgradecluster: Quiesce dropdb for already existing 'postgres'
   * pg_upgradecluster: Avoid harmless, but confusing error messages about role
     - Do not use -c for pg_dumpall, since the target roles should not yet
       exist anyway.
     - Filter out the 'CREATE (ROLE|USER)' command for the db superuser, since
       it will already exist.
     - Testsuite: Check that pg_upgradecluster output contains no server error
     - Closes: #389930
 postgresql-common (64) unstable; urgency=low
   * Fix pg_ctlcluster regression from 63: 'database system is starting up'
     fatal error message caused immediate abortion of startup checks. Make the
     check easier and more robust, adapt test cases accordingly.
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Add check that PL/Perl works. Check that
     -plperl-X.Y. is installed in t/001_packages.t.
   * t/{040_upgrade.t,041_upgrade_custompaths.t}: Check for pg_restore error
     messages during upgrade.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Avoid pg_restore errors during upgrade (they were
     nonfatal, but look ugly:)
     - Drop 'postgres' db in 8.1+ target cluster if the source cluster already
       has it.
     - Do not use pg_restore's --create for template1.
     - Fix hardcoded library paths before dumping/restoring the cluster, not
       after, to avoid error messages about failed library loads.
 postgresql-common (63) unstable; urgency=low
   * t/090_multicluster.t, t/100_upgrade_scripts.t: Replace hardcoded '8.1'
     versions in test data with appropriate $MAJORS values.
   * pg_createcluster: Add configure_8_2().
   * pg_ctlcluster, check_running_postmaster(): Check for both 'postmaster' and
     'postgres' processes to also work for 8.2.
   * t/TestLib.pm, check_clean(): Also check for running 'postgres' processes
     (since that's how the server is called in 8.2+). Update number of tests
   * t/TestLib.pm, check_clean(): Fix regexp for netstat port grepping so that
     ports like '54321' do not match.
   * t/TestLib.pm, pidof(): Make pidof() strict enough to not catch the stats
     collector and writer subprocesses.
   * t/*.t: Various small adaptions to work with 8.2, too.
   * t/060_obsolete_confparams.t: Add full configuration for 8.1, to test
     8.1->8.2 upgrade.
   * pg_upgradecluster: When upgrading to 8.2, transition changed configuration
     - preload_libraries -> shared_preload_libraries
     - australian_timezones -> timezone_abbreviations
   * pg_ctlcluster: Instead of parsing pg_hba.conf, just try to connect with
     setting PGPASSWORD to a bogus value, and check for authentication errors.
     This is more robust and more elegant, and also covers nonstandard
     authentication schemes correctly. Closes: #388419
   * debian/supported-versions: Recklessly consider 8.2 as supported to avoid
     whining if 8.2 package gets backported.
 postgresql-common (62) unstable; urgency=low
   * t/080_start.conf.t: Check that stop'ing a cluster works even if the
     cluster is disabled (test for bug #386996).
   * pg_ctlcluster: Allow 'stop' and 'autovac-stop' for disabled clustes.
     Closes: #386996
   * Reduce options passed to postmaster at runtime to shorten command line and
     make the configuration more obvious and explicit:
     - pg_ctlcluster: Do not pass unix_socket_dir/hba_file/ident_file if it is
       already defined in postgresql.conf.
     - pg_createcluster: If we create a cluster >= 8.0, set hba_file,
       ident_file, and external_pid_file in postgresql.conf.
     - 070_non_postgres_clusters.t: Fix expected output accordingly and
       use 'ls' for socket check instead of looking at the command line.
     - Closes: #384999
 postgresql-common (61) unstable; urgency=low
   * pg_lsclusters: Remove trailing spaces from output, adapt test suite
   * pg_upgradecluster: Correctly pass custom datadir to pg_createcluster.
     Closes: #385034
   * Add t/041_upgrade_custompaths.t: Test upgrading with a custom data
     directory and log file path (this also covers bug #385034).
 postgresql-common (60) unstable; urgency=low
   * Update Czech debconf translations, thanks to Miroslav Kure.
     Closes: #384757
   * t/090_multicluster.t: Check that $PGHOST and $PGDATABASE environment
     variables are respected and have the correct precedence. (This reproduces
     #385971). Now this test has full coverage of all libpq environment
     variables but $PGUSER (which is not used at all anywhere).
   * pg_wrapper: Do not override $PGDATABASE and $PGHOST with user_clusters
     map. Closes: #385971
   * Update Dutch debconf translations, thanks to Vincent Zweije.
     Closes: #386704
   * pg_createcluster: Fix POD to have consistent long-option syntax. Thanks to
     Bastian Kleineidam! (Part of bug #386148)
   * Improve handling of custom socket directories:
     - pg_createcluster: Create a nonexisting directory.
     - pg_dropcluster: Remove empty socket directory unless it's /tmp or
     - Thanks to Bastian Kleineidam for the suggestions.
     - t/030_errors.t: Do not create our custom socket dir ourselves any more,
       since pg_createcluster is now supposed to handle that (thus providing a
       test case).
     - Closes:  #386148

   * t/001_packages.t: Check that p-plpython-X.Y is installed.
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Check that PL/Python works properly.
   * Update French debconf translations, thanks to Guilhelm Panaget
     <guilhelm.panaget@free.fr>. Closes: #382447
   * Add Portugese debconf translations, thanks to Rui Branco
     <ruipb@debianpt.org>. Closes: #381946
   * postgresql-common/debian/postgresql-common.config:
     - Ensure that the 'untransitioned' critical debconf note is always shown,
       not just once. Otherwise the preinst just fails without giving any hint
       about the reason after the first failure.
     - Additionally print a small hint to stderr, for the case that people do
       not use the interactive frontend.
     - Closes: #382134
 postgresql-common (58) unstable; urgency=low
   * pg_wrapper: Improve manpage POD, describe the precise rules for cluster
   * t/090_multicluster.t: Check for proper error message of pg_wrapper (no
     suitable default cluster) if several local clusters exist and none are on
     the default port.
   * pg_wrapper: Print proper error message if no cluster is suitable as
     default target and point to man pg_wrapper.
   * pg_upgradecluster:
     - Support /etc/postgresql-common/pg_upgradecluster.d/ hook scripts. These
       are called after creating the virgin new version cluster (phase 'init')
       and a second time after the upgrade is complete (phase 'finish').
       PostgreSQL extensions like PostGIS can use these hooks to initialize
       metadata which must not be upgraded from the old cluster, but
       initialized from scratch. Closes: #351571
     - Document this feature in the manpage POD.
     - If upgrade scripts are present, call pg_restore with the new -X
       no-data-for-failed-tables option to not clutter already existing tables
       in the new cluster with data from the old cluster. Abort with an error
       if the installed pg_restore does not support this option.
     - debian/postgresql-common.dirs: Ship
   * Add t/120_pg_upgradecluster_scripts.t: Selftest for pg_upgradecluster.d
     hooks and proper pg_restore -X no-data-for-failed-tables behaviour.
   * PgCommon.pm, get_cluster_locales(): Fix parsing of locales out of
     pg_controldata output by calling it under the locale 'C' and being more
     liberal in the regular expression. (https://launchpad.net/bugs/50755)
 postgresql-common (57) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/postgresql-common.{preinst,config}: Check if there is a removed,
     but not purged pre-transition postgresql-client or postgresql package.
     Packages in this state subtly break operation, but are not caught by the
     Conflicts: statements. Display a critical note in that case and abort
     installation. Closes: #368827
 postgresql-common (56) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/init.d-functions, status(): Exit with code 3 if any cluster is
     down, to get a bit closer to LSB specification (which does not
     sufficiently specify the case of controlling multiple processes in one
     init script). Thanks to Ross Boylan <RossBoylan@stanfordalumni.org>!
     Closes: #358152
   * pg_ctlcluster:
     - start: Create an external PID file /var/run/postgresql/
       <version>-<cluster>.pid for 8.0+ versions (7.4 doesn't support this yet)
       unless 'external_pid_file' is already set in postgresql.conf.
       Closes: #180849, #184782
     - stop: Remove this external pid file (this should be done by the
       postmaster itself, but 8.1.4 does not).
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Check that starting a cluster creates a PID
     file in /var/run/postgresql/, but doesn't if external_pid_file was set
   * t/030_errors.t: Adapt to new PID file creation behaviour.
   * t/030_errors.t: modprobe loop before setting up the test loopback device.
   * debian/supported-versions: Add Ubuntu 6.10.
 postgresql-common (55) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add missing procps dependency to p-common. Closes: #369768
   * pg_dropcluster: Clean up half-existing broken cluster configurations
     (which happen when disk becomes full, etc) instead of failing. (part of
     bug #368335).
   * t/030_errors.t: Test that pg_dropcluster copes with broken cluster
   * debian/maintscripts-functions: Do not fail package installation if
     pg_createcluster fails (/var might be full and the admin might want to use
     a different directory). Merely print out an error message and point to
     pg_createcluster and its manpage. (part of bug #368335)
   * t/030_errors.t: Create a temporary 10 MB loop mount on /var/lib/postgresql
     and check that pg_createcluster fails with an appropriate error and leaves
     no cruft behind.
   * pg_createcluster: Call pg_dropcluster to clean up cruft if anything fails
     in the cluster creation process. This avoids an inconsistent system if e.
     g. running out of disk space during installation. Closes: #368335

   * pg_wrapper: Support specifying remote clusters with $PGCLUSTER, --cluster,
     user_clusters, and ~/.postgresqlrc with 'host:[port]' as cluster name.
     Closes: #340162
   * t/090_multicluster.t: Add tests for above feature.
   * user_clusters.5, postgresqlrc.5: Document format for remote clusters.
   * debian/supported-versions:
     - Also recognize Ubuntu dapper version number '6.06LTS'.
     - Fix bashism: 'type -p' -> type.
   * debian/control: Have p-common always depend on the recent p-client-common,
     since the latter ships PgCommon.pm. If the library is out of date, this
     can break operations horribly. Closes: #369289
   * Add Dutch debconf translation, thanks to Vincent Zweije
     <zweije@xs4all.nl>! Closes: #369237
   * t/TestLib.pm: If the test suite is called with FAILURE=shell environment,
     spawn bash before continuing. This makes it easier to debug obscure
   * t/TestLib.pm, check_clean(): Check that PostgreSQL TCP sockets are closed.
     Adapt number of tests in all t/*.t.
   * t/090_multicluster.t: Just before checking for cleanness, wait until all
     TIME_WAIT sockets on the server ports went away, so that the following
     tests will not stumble over them. This seems to be a 7.4 server bug which
     is fixed in 8.1 at least.

     so that the test suite fails early if not.
   * t/050_encodings.t, t/060_obsolete_confparams.t: Use ru_RU{,.UTF-8} for
     tests, since they have more potential for failure.
   * t/050_encodings.t:
     - Add check for https://launchpad.net/bugs/39177: Correct encoding of
       server error messages under various locales.
     - Add check for bug #343057: Correct startup if client_encoding and
       lc_messages settings do not match.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Set LC_CTYPE environment variable to unbreak server error
     messages. (Closes https://launchpad.net/bugs/39177). By only setting CTYPE
     we also avoid reintroducing bug #343057. (Yay for postmaster being so anal
     about its environment)
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Consider LC_CTYPE a safe environment variable.
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Bump version comparison for restarting

     - debian/postgresql-common.postinst:
       + Remove generation of PostgreSQL specific SSL certificate.
       + Add postgres user to the ssl-cert group on upgrades to this version or
         on fresh installs.
     - pg_createcluster:
       + Adapt cert/key paths to snakeoil.
       + Update manpage documentation POD.
       + Enable SSL only if SSL key can be accessed with the cluster owner's

     pg_createcluster's --start, and update documentation. --stop-server still
     works for backward compatibility, though. Closes: #360697

     postmaster; it handles locales by itself, and explicitly setting them
     breaks sometimes. Thanks to Olleg Samoylov for analyzing this.
     Closes: #343057

   * testsuite: Set all variables that potentially cause Perl taint check
     errors (IFS, CDPATH, ENV, BASH_ENV) to catch taint check bugs.

   * PgCommon.pm, change_ugid(): Fix the order of $< and $> assignment so that
     we don't trash the saved uid and can switch back later. This allows us to
     make use of this function in the test suite, too.
   * t/TestLib.pm: Use change_ugid() in exec_as() get auxiliary groups. This
     makes the test suite work with SSL keys which are only readable by
     ssl-cert group members.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Untaint PID value read from autovacuum.pid.
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Add check that SSL is automatically enabled on

   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Only restart servers if upgrading from
     a version with important pg_ctlcluster changes in between (currently,
     prior than 40).
   * t/090_multicluster.t: Add test for user_clusters behaviour.
   * PgCommon.pm, user_cluster_map(): Print a meaningful error message instead
     of 'invalid symbolic link' gibberish if a cluster in user_clusters or
     .postgresqlrc does not exist.
   * pg_ctlcluster:
     - Exit with code 2 if the cluster is already (start)/not (stop) running
       and fix error messages to be consistent. (See bug #355004)
     - Document the exit codes in the POD.
     - t/030_errors.t: Adapt test suite.

       environments. Thanks to Chmouel Boudjnah.

     the log file directory was changed in postgresql.conf.
 postgresql-common (42) unstable; urgency=low

     SSL certificates which are only group readable (which previously caused
     the test suite to fail).

     already existing clusters to not catch subdirectories with non-cluster
     files (e. g. a single *.old and similar).

   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Avoid error message from ls if
     /usr/lib/postgresql does not exist.

     only use Debian's log directory if neither is set. Thanks to Scott Chapman
     for discovering this issue.

   * Add /usr/share/postgresql-common/pg_checksystem: Check system parameters
     which are relevant to PostgreSQL. Right now this checks if write caching
     is enabled on any disk containing PostgreSQL clusters.
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Call pg_checksystem. Closes: #318928
   * Bump Standards-Version to 3.6.2.
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Setup user 'postgres' with /bin/bash as
     default shell. Closes: #320810
   * pg_wrapper, debian/postgresql-common.links: Wrap reindexdb, it is a
     standard client program in 8.1.
   * pg_createcluster: Do not create autovacuum log file for servers >= 8.1.
   * PgCommon.pm: For determining avac_enable on 8.1+ servers, read
     "autovacuum" setting from postgresql.conf.
   * pg_maintenance: Use avac_enable flag instead of checking for the
     pg_autovacuum pid file to determine whether autovacuuming is enabled. This
     is a more general approach and works for all server versions.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Do not attempt to start pg_autovacuum on 8.1+ servers.
   * pg_createcluster: Add hook for version specific function to configure
   * pg_createcluster: Add default configuration for 7.4 clusters:
     - tcpip_socket = true
     - stats_row_level = true
   * pg_createcluster: Add default configuration for 8.0 clusters:
     - listen_addresses = '*'
     - stats_row_level = true
   * pg_createcluster: Add default configuration for 8.1 clusters:
     - listen_addresses = '*'
     - stats_row_level = on
     - autovacuum = on
   * PgCommon.pm, set_conf_value(): Preserve comments.
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Generalized restarting of all clusters
     to make it automatically work for future versions.
   * pg_createcluster: Adapt pg_hba.conf to the current default (md5 for host
     connections, ident sameuser for local ones); this obsoletes the
     default-pg_hba.conf patches in the server packages.
   * user_clusters: Update comments, throw out bogus documentation.
     Closes: #324749
   * pg_createcluster: Only mangle configuration files (pg_hba.conf, SSL
     enabling, etc.) if we create a new cluster, not if we integrate an already
     existing one. Closes: #323878
   * Add debian/postgresql-common.logrotate: Simple log rotation.
     Closes: #316100
 postgresql-common (23) unstable; urgency=low
   * pg_maintenance: Change directory to / before changing uid to avoid "could
     not change directory" errors. Closes: #318604.
   * Drop upgrade-scripts/all_vacuum_t1.sql since it causes too much trouble
     with big databases. Replace it with upgrade-scripts/all_test_t1.sql which
     just counts the tables in the database. This should be unintrusive, fast,
     and still appropriate for testing the upgrade scripts mechanism.
     Closes: #319035
   * pg_ctlcluster: Check if autovacuum log file symlink is dangling and avoid
     warnings about uninitialized warnings. Instead print out a meaningful
     error message. Closes: #318717
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Generate a dummy
     /etc/postgresql-common/root.crt if not present. Closes: #319110
   * debian/postgresql-common.postrm: Remove /etc/postgresql-common/root.crt on
   * pg_createcluster: If /etc/postgresql-common/root.crt exists, symlink
     root.crt from the data directory. Closes: #318818
   * debian/README.Debian: Document root.crt handling.
 postgresql-common (22) unstable; urgency=low
   * pg_createcluster: Set default authentication for TCP connections to "md5"
     instead of the old "ident sameuser" default since it makes a lot more
   * tests/000_debs: Fix detection of whether a package is installed.
   * tests/100_encodings: Fix filtering of postmaster processes.
 postgresql-common (21) unstable; urgency=low
   * README.Debian: Explain that a server is required, give postgresql-8.0
     example. (The descriptions of the packages have been updated in
     postgresql-{7.4,8.0}.) Closes: #313247
   * README.Debian: Add "-s /bin/sh" to su command to also work with disabled
     shells for postgres.
   * README.Debian: Document autovacuum handling.
 postgresql-common (20) unstable; urgency=low
   * Add infrastructure for executing SQL or executable scripts on clusters and
     databases on upgrade. This can be useful to apply security updates which
     need to change database layouts (like for CAN-2005-1409), do checks on
     upgrades, and maybe other things.
     - Add run-upgrade-scripts and call it in the postinst.
     - Add /usr/share/postgresql-common/upgrade-scripts/ where scripts are
       stored into.
     - Add /usr/share/postgresql-common/upgrade-scripts/SPECIFICATION.
     - This checks for available databases, thus will not fail on a nonexisting
       template0. Closes: #312707
     - Tests are run right after starting all clusters. Also, the package
       installation does not fail if the upgrade fails on a single cluster or
       database. Closes: #308685
   * pg_ctlcluster: pg_ctl's -o option is not cumulative, fix postmaster
     argument passing. This ensures that "-c unix_socket_directory" is always
     passed to the postmaster.
   * pg_createcluster: Do not configure a cluster for SSL if the owner is not
     the owner of /etc/postgresql-common/postgresql.pem. This fixes cluster
     creation for non-postgres owners.
   * Add test 130_nonpostgres_clusters: Check cluster creation and operation
     for a cluster owned by "nobody".
   * Add upgrade-scripts/all_vacuum_t1.sql: Upgrade script that will just
     vacuum all available databases. This is pretty useful and harmless, and is
     a good thing to test upgrade scripts at a larger scale.
   * init.d-functions: Rename autovac-* to autovac_* to comply to POSIX shell
     identifier rules. Closes: #315551
 postgresql-common (19) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Generate an SSL certificate and key if
     it doesn't exist yet and openssl is installed. Closes: #212526
   * debian/control: Recommend openssl and explain its purpose.
   * pg_createcluster: If SSL certificate and key exist, symlink it to the
     cluster directory where the postmaster looks for them and enable SSL in
     the configuration.
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Only restart servers when configuring.
   * debian/init.d-functions: "pg_ctl restart" does not seem to re-read certain
     configuration parameters like the socket directory, so replace it with
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Create /var/run/postgresql before
     creating the initial cluster to ensure that the socket directory will be
     present. Closes: #312899
   * Added debian/postgresql-common.postrm: Clean up on purge.
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Check whether the user postgres exists
     before calling adduser to avoid confusing warning messages.
 postgresql-common (18) unstable; urgency=low
   * pg_ctlcluster: Change directory to /var/lib/postgresql to avoid error
     messages when doing an operation in a directory which the database owner
     cannot access.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Pass the default socket directory to the postmaster,
     otherwise it will always be /tmp if unix_socket_directory is not specified
     in postgresql.conf. Closes: #314537
   * Added tests/041_server_default_socketdir: Check that the socket is created
     in /var/run/postgresql if unix_socket_directory is not specified.
   * pg_ctlcluster:
     - On startup, check for a stale or invalid PID file and remove it if
     - On stop, bail out on an invalid PID file. Closes: #304466.
   * Added tests/021_invalid_pidfile: Corrupt the pid file in various ways
     while the server is running and down. Also check double start/stop.
 postgresql-common (17) unstable; urgency=low
   * PgCommon.pm, cluster_port_running(): Attempt to connect() to the server
     socket for probing if the server is running. The previous method of using
     'psql -l' asked for a password if md5/password authentication is used
     locally. Closes: #314292
   * testsuite: Ignore whitespace changes in expected vs. actual output.
   * tests/100_encodings: Fix race condition when showing postmaster processes:
     If we catch the postmaster right at fork() time, ps shows two postmaster
     instances instead of one. Filter them away to get the expected output.
 postgresql-common (16) unstable; urgency=low
   * pg_createcluster: Add --logfile parameter.
   * pg_wrapper(1): Clarify synopsis.
   * debian/rules: Deuglify manpages by building them with --quotes=none.
   * debian/maintscripts-functions: Do not create a default "main" cluster when
     upgrading a server package.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Handle more configuration parameter transitions:
     - syslog -> log_destination
     - log_statement: false/true -> none/all
     - log_{pid,timestamp,hostname,source_port} -> log_line_prefix
     - obsolete max_expr_depth
   * pg_upgradecluster: Use new replace_conf_value() function which
     produces nicer configuration files with transitioned parameters.
   * Add test 120_obsolete_confparams: Upgrade a 7.4 cluster with all
     possible 7.4 options enabled.
   * PgCommon.pm: Fix parsing of autovacuum parameters.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Respect the avac_debug autovacuum configuration option.
   * pg_createcluster: Since the new default socket directory is
     /var/run/postgresql, explicitly set /tmp as socket directory for clusters
     if /var/run/postgresql is not writable by the cluster owner.
   * PgCommon.pm, get_cluster_socketdir(): If unix_socket_directory is not
     specified explicitly in postgresql.conf, default to /var/run/postgresql
     for postgres-owned clusters. Closes: #313651
   * pg_ctlcluster: Do not sleep at all after starting the postmaster if we
     don't run the autovacuum daemon; sleep for a full second if we do.
 postgresql-common (15) unstable; urgency=low
   * First unstable upload, welcome to the PostgreSQL future.
   * Quiet maintenance:
     - pg_maintenance: Supply -q to vacuumdb unless in verbose mode.
     - postgresql-common.cron.d: Direct stdout to /dev/null.
     - Adapted tests/060_maintenance expected output.
     - Closes: #312298

   * testsuite:
     - Temporarily stop existing servers and move away existing files before
       executing the tests.
     - Restore the original files after the tests.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Check return value of pg_dumpall and psql and fail if
     they are not successful.
   * pg_createuser: Fix indentation of socket warning.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Check if cluster is running, exit with an error if not.
   * pg_createcluster: Added option --encoding to override detection from
   * pg_createcluster: Guess default encoding from locale for clusters older
     than 8.0 to get the same behaviour as for 8.0.
   * debian/control: Conflict to postgresql-7.4 << 1:7.4.8-5 since earlier
     versions do not support non-ASCII encodings (due to missing pg_encoding).
   * pg_ctlcluster: Check that the cluster owner uid/gid really exist.
     Closes: #311546
   * pg_lsclusters: Ensure that there is at least one space between the colums.
   * Added tests/100_encodings which checks cluster creation and updates
     for different encodings and locales.
   * pg_upgradecluster: Preserve socket directory, locales, and encoding.
   * tests/100_encodings: Check the locale the postmaster is running under.
 postgresql-common (12) experimental; urgency=low

     away the autovacuum log file.
   * pg_maintenance: -v only influences vacuumdb output now, always show
   * Added a test suite:
     - Test scripts are in tests/*.
     - Expected output is in tests/*.ex.
     - Test suite is run with './testsuite' as root.
   * pg_createcluster:
     - Converted optional third parameter to option --datadir.
     - Rework POD to have a separate OPTIONS section.
     - Add option description to online help.

   * pg_maintenance: Removed option '-e' from vacuumdb call (leftover from
   * PgCommon.pm, user_cluster_map(): If several clusters exist, but no
     mapping is configured, return not only the default port's cluster version,
     but also its name. This fixes the socket directory determination for this
   * debian/rules: Fix clean target to remove the manpages created from POD
