I'm not sure there's some bright line between adding a new SQL-callable function to cut down the test time and any other tinkering we might do to reduce the regression test time. I think there's a pretty good argument that all of the recent changes you made in this area constitute strictly optional tinkering. I'm haven't been objecting because they don't seem likely to destabilize anything, but I don't see that they're really helping us get ready for beta either, which is presumably what we ought to be focusing on at this point. -- 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
