Given that this was backpatched and that it broke narwhal in all branches, I think the solution needs to make narwhal work again without requiring it to upgrade; so we should acquire CheckTokenMembership via dynloading just like we do the other functions. If we want to require a newer mingw version in pg10, that's acceptable, but it should be a separate patch. -- Álvaro Herrera https://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
