Hi all,

This is the continuation to the discussion that we had in the hacker's list.

Here, I like to add some details in 20.2.6. PAM authentication section.

Can someone review and make changes, if required? Thanks.

+      The local UNIX user authentication is not permitted,
+      because the postgres server is started by a non-root user.
+      In order to enable this functionality, the root user must provide
+ additional permissions to the postgres user (for reading /etc/shadow file).
