I am not sure I'm quite following you, but I'm unaware that there are some contrib modules that we maintain more than others. Bugs and security vulnerabilities in any of them are typically fixed when reported. Now, sometimes we might not be able to fix a bug because of some architectural deficiency, but that also happens in the server - consider, for example, the recent discussion of creating a table in a schema that is concurrently being dropped, which is likely to require far more invasive fixing than we are probably willing to do anywhere other than master. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
