Basically what we want for the ALTER TABLE scenario is "ignore *all* permissions checks"; if somebody adds some other check here in future, it probably also ought to be skipped during a rebuild. So a single bool ought to be fine. Are you intending to back-patch this? It seems like a bug fix --- but not a very high-priority one, so at this point maybe it should wait till after the release wraps. 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
