Good idea, though I'd think of it as a pg_upgrade option more than being initdb's problem. Either way, though, it would be on the code's head to do something about converting the postgresql.conf, pg_hba.conf, etc configuration files from the old cluster to the new, which means this isn't just a trivial matter of running initdb on the target PGDATA location. That turns it into a bit of a research project I'm afraid --- but if we could get there, it'd be a nice improvement. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
