The last time we discussed about that on this list we concluded that it was not really necessary to have such checks, for one it makes the code more simple, and because this is leveraged by the presence of --enable-tap-tests, tests which can get actually costly with check-world. But this is digressing the subject of this thread, which deals with the fact of having recovery tests integrated in core... -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
