I'm slightly mystified as to how including the word "online" helps here. It's unlikely that there will be an offline_backup permission, because if the system is off-line, SQL-level permissions are irrelevant. > * LOG - allows role to rotate log files - remains broad enough to consider > future log related operations Maybe LOGFILE? Only because some confusion with the LOG message level seems possible; or confusion about whether this is a permission that lets you log things. -- 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
