Sir, RHEL6 is not prehistoric ... and this is failing on my server too. I'm not sure when "is_passing" was added, but it was later than 5.10.1. > Fix attached.

The point of running ancient versions in the buildfarm is so that we don't move the goalposts on software compatibility without knowing it. When we come across a good reason to desupport an old Perl or Tcl or whatever version, we'll do it; but having to add another ten lines or so of code doesn't seem like a good reason. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
