Like Tomas, I am not really getting this opposition.. > I see the current behavior is documented, and I do understand why global > objects can't be part of the extension, but for indexes it seems to violate > POLA a bit. > > Is there a reason why we don't want the extension/index dependencies? I think that we could do a better effort for indexes at least, in the same way as we do for sequences as both are referenced in pg_class. I don't know the effort to get that done for < 9.6, but if we can do it at least for 9.6 and 10, which is where pg_dump is a bit smarter in the way it deals with dependencies, we should do it. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
