Those are both categorial false claims. Debian certainly does not ship with 'trust' auth, nor do our PGDG packages. They also move the conf files out of the data directory. Last, but not least, they absolutely enable conf.d directories even when that is not the default upstream. Additionally, I fully expect and hope that the apt.postgresql.org packages to follow the Debian/Ubuntu package management- having those diverge would absolutely be a horrible idea and cause a great deal of trouble for our users. Ideally, we can all agree, but this notion that the PGDG must follow what happens on -hackers is simply wrong, we need include and coordinate with the OS package maintainers. > It's more than in interesting thought.

If I was writing the tool, I'm pretty sure that I'd be writing all that code either way. Thanks, Stephen
