Well, that's a reflection of what those releases were actually called at the time: we did not start using ".0" on major releases until the 8.0 branch. Compare tarball names in https://www.postgresql.org/ftp/source/v7.4/ https://www.postgresql.org/ftp/source/v8.0/ So we could go back and add tags like REL7_4_0 but it would be historical revisionism. Is there a particular reason to do it? It seems like stuff that far back is only of historical interest, so I'm kind of -1 on corrupting the historical record with retroactive labels. BTW, there are some missing tags back there, for instance no REL7_0_1. I believe this is because we couldn't exactly identify which commit corresponded to the published tarballs. I'd be for filling in those gaps if anyone can figure it out. 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
