FWIW, I agree with the upthread misgivings about whether this is actually a useful effort. Even if we installed the sample config files somewhere (something there is not consensus for AFAICT), they would not actually *do* anything useful as standalone files. I suppose you are imagining that people would either manually concatenate them onto postgresql.conf or insert an include directive for them into postgresql.conf, but neither of those things sound pleasant or maintainable. Moreover, it's not clear why anyone would do that at all in the age of ALTER SYSTEM SET. I suggest that it'd be more fruitful to view this as a documentation effort; that is, in each contrib module's SGML documentation file provide a standardized section listing all its parameters and their default settings. That would be something that could be copied-and-pasted from into either an editor window on postgresql.conf for the old guard, or an ALTER SYSTEM SET command for the new. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
