Just the other day, I needed this patch yet again but had to go look up the documentation instead. I wonder if it would be a good idea to have a postgresql.conf.d directory that postgresql.conf would include_dir by default. These could then live in there and all I would have had to do is uncomment the values I wanted. This patch doesn't do that, of course, but I could easily write a patch that does. Would that go over better with the -1ers? -- Vik Fearing +33 6 46 75 15 36 http://2ndQuadrant.fr PostgreSQL : Expertise, Formation et Support -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
