I'd just add it to be honest. Taking backups from standbys, with or without the master being connected is a supported feature, and we want to follow-up to be sure that it does not in the future. Having now the infrastructure for more complex scenarios does not mean of course that we need to test everything and all kind of things, of course, but here the benefits are good compared to the cost that a single call of pg_basebackup has in the complete the test suite run. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
