Personally, I have been trapped by the fact that worker_spi does not get built when doing a simple check-world recently... So +1 for just building it when running check-world. We gain nothing with the current behavior except alarms on the buildfarm. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
