Hi, Currently superuser privilege is required when the standby connects to the primary. But there is the complaint that we should add new privilege for replication and use it instead of superuser because current approach is not good for security (*1). This has been listed as one of TODO items of SR.
This TODO item really needs to be addressed for 9.0? Frankly I'm not familiar with that area, so I've not work on it at all yet, but I'm going to create the patch if many people want it for 9.0. What is your opinion?
