It seems to me that you may be conflating the issue of which changes should be masked out as hints (which is, indeed, special case code, whether underdocumented or not) with the issue of which rmgrs the user may want to verify (which is just a case of matching the rmgr ID in the WAL record against a list provided by the user, and is not special case code at all). -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
