Considering how fresh scram is, it seems clear to me that we do not want to just switch the default values of password_encryption, the default behaviors of PQencryptPassword() and \password only to scram, but have something else. Actually if we change nothing for default deployments of Postgres using md5, PQencryptPassword() and \password would still work properly. -- Michael -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
