My patch only works on the PostgreSQL server code. No changes have been

made to the initialization scripts.

The patch declares three extra configuration file parameters:

hbafile= '/etc/postgres/pg_hba.conf'



If we're going to do this, I think we need to account for all of the

files in the directory including PG_VERSION, postmaster.opts, In the end if we can't build so that we are either fully

FHS compliant and/or LSB compliant, we've not done enough work on it.

postmaster.opts, PG_VERSION, and are not configuration


So? I'm not saying they all have to be moved, just they all need to be
accounted for. 
OK, what was the point?

PG_VERSION is VERY important, it is how you know the version of the
database. is a postgres writable value 
AFAIK, postmaster.opts is also a postgres writable value.


IIRC the file should be in /var/run according to FHS, I'm
not sure about postmaster.opts though...

Again, if we're going to make a change, let's make sure we think it
I'm not a big fan of the "/var/run" directory convention, especially when we expect multiple instances of the server to be able to run concurrently. I suppose it can be a parameter in both the configuration file and command line.
