What you actually wanted, as I understood it, was that "make world" plus "make check-world" should test absolutely everything. I don't have a problem with the idea that some bits of test scaffolding don't get built until you do "make check-world". The real problem here is that "make check-world" missed some tests, which Peter agrees is a bug. Andres complained about insufficient parallelism in the "check" target, but that seems to me to be something to address separately; redefining the set of actions to be taken is not the way to fix that. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
