Re: Bug#626559: postgresql-8.4: pg_upgrade_fix/8.4.8 needed for stable/squeeze

Hello Ivan, hello release team,

As Debian primarily uses pg_upgradecluster it wasn't that urgent, but
I do realize that people on squeeze want to play around with
upgrading to 9.0 (although for that you should use 9.0's pg_upgrade).

Nevertheless, the upgrade also fixes other bugs [1], and as there have not
been any regression reports so far, I think it is safe to allow 8.4.8
into squeeze now. I uploaded 8.4.8-0squeeze1 to the stable queue. It
passes the upstream and postgresql-common integration test suite. The
only packaging diff is the changelog.

I can build an upstream debdiff if you want me to, but I suppose you
generate those with debdiff on queue processing anyway?
