I have no particular objection to dropping 2.3 support, but should we make some effort to fail gracefully (ie, with a relevant error message) on older versions? I would guess that the effect of your patch will be to produce quite opaque failures. We seem to be computing python_version in configure, so it shouldn't be that hard to check. > - It's unlikely that Python 2.3 is still used in practice.

If we're going to claim support for 2.4, we'd be well advised to test it. 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
