Sounds good. Looking around briefly (e.g., Apache, nginx), the standard approach appears to be a configuration setting that gets the password from an external program or file. (Although the default still appears to be to get from tty.) systemd has support for getting passwords to services without tty. So if someone is interested, there is some room for enhancement here. -- Peter Eisentraut http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
