I'm sorely tempted to try to provide some higher-quality trolling, but in all seriousness I think that (1) we could certainly use much better regression tests in many areas of which this is one and (2) it will never be possible to catch all security bugs - in particular - via regression testing because they typically stem from cases people didn't consider. So... can we get back to coming up with a reasonable definition, and if somebody wants to write some regression tests, all the better? -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise Postgres Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
