Thanks for the review.
* Removing hot_standby setting is not included in this patch; happy to
keep that separate; very low priority
* Renaming primary_* parameters - Currently we use this config setting
even when connecting to a standby, so the parameter is confusingly
named, so 10.0 is a good chance to name it correctly. Will submit as
* Directory for signal files was in my understanding a primary goal of
the patch. I am happy to remove that into a later submission. That
resolves, for now, the issue with pg_basebackup -R.
The above changes are fairly minor.
The main area of "design doubt" remains the implementation of the
recovery_target parameter set. Are we happy with the user interface
choices in the patch, given the understanding that the situation was
more comple than at first thought?
