Looks good to me, except maybe:

+   <para>
+    For partitioned tables, partitions are automatically excluded from the
+    schema data imported. Only the definition of partitioned tables is
+    to give access to the full data set of all partitions present remotely.
+   </para>

Only the definitions of "root" partitioned tables, because when using
multi-level partitioning, there would be partitioned tables that won't be
included (because, relispartition=true).

If you agree, then this code comment too could use the same terminology:

+         * Ignore table data for partitions and only include the parent
+         * definitions to allow access to the complete remote data set
+         * locally in the schema imported.
+         *
