There is no value in providing exact message matches when the backpatch occurs even after one other commit in the master branch. The principal reason for the requirement is so that src/tools/git_changelog is able to merge the commits as a single entry, and that's not going to happen when you have one or more other commits in the master branch anyway. I find it more productive to mention, in the backpatched commit message, what is the commit ID in the master branch. That way it can be more easily be searched for, later on. -- Álvaro Herrera http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
