I don't think it's quite fair to complain about the TAP tests taking a long time to run as a general matter. Many people here have long wanted a separate test-suite for long running tests that can be run to really check everything possible, and apparently, TAP tests are it. What I think would be more useful is to break down where the time is getting spent. It may be that some of those tests are not adding value proportionate to their runtime. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
