I fully agree. The extension infrastructure should provide basic support for upgrades, not every kind of bell and whistle one could possible think of. The bells and whistles can then be provided by the system used to *build* the extension. Not only does this keep the core infrastructure manageable, it also allows different tools to generate the update scripts to exist, each catering to the needs of different kinds of extensions. best regards, Florian Pflug -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
