Hello, With all the recent discussion on contrib modules etc.. I would like to offer the following suggestion. I am willing to do a good portion of the work myself and I can get it done before feature freeze. I will need help with the global make file stuff however so that is one dependency.
Add directory /modules Modules are compiled and installed by default but not enabled. Modules in 8.3 currently are: pgrowlocks pg_freespacemap (to be renameed pgfreespacemap to be consistent) pgstattuple pgcrypto xml2 pgbuffercache initagg Requirements for /modules Must go through normal vetting process on -hackers Must include patches to core documentation in Docbook Must include test cases? I don't recall if we have regress for all contrib stuff. Keep directory contrib Contrib is not compiled or installed by default Contrib in 8.3 would be: start-scripts pgbench (which I think really should be a foundry project) vacuumlo (is this even required anymore?) adminpack btree_gist etc... Requirements for /contrib Must go through normal vetting process on -hackers Must includes README Must include test cases? Same questions for modules Thoughts, flames? Sincerely, Joshua D.
