You should submit to -patches; at least that it should either get
into the queue or you should get a reason why it didn't.

some time ago I started a discussion  here about modifying pg_dump
to not restore TABLE DATA objects if the corresponding TABLE oject

fail due to a different error like a nonexisting data type). We need
this to provide automatic major version upgrades for databases with
extensions like PostGIS. Tom's reply  seemed to indicate that this
was not entirely crackful, so I implemented his approach, and after
some feedback I now have a fairly clean patch that works very well.
The patch was scheduled for review and inclusion , and indeed the
page had the patch for a while, but after some time it vanished.
Can you please reconsider this? If there is still a problem with the
patch, I'd like to work on it until it meets your standards.
For your convenience I attach the current patch version; a test script
 is also available (the ML kills shell script attachments, so I put
it on a Debian server). It does not alter the default behaviour, it
just adds a new option -X no-data-for-failed-tables. If you think this
mode should be the default, I'm happy to change it that way.
Thank you a lot!
