Yeah, I think it's fine if parent gets dumped without one or more of its children, that's user's choice when it used a certain pattern. Problematic case might be when we dump a child without its parent and have INHERITS clause there. pg_restore would throw an error. But in case that problem exists it's very old and should be fixed separately. -- Best Wishes, Ashutosh Bapat EnterpriseDB Corporation The Postgres Database Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
