I don't agree with the reasoning. The change of the directory name was because some people erroneously delete the directory. There is little to no risk that people accidentally delete built-in functions. It was not agreed that because we rename the directory that all other uses of "xlog" have to be removed as well. All those subsequent changes need to stand on their own. -- Peter Eisentraut http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
