postgresql-common 188 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

postgresql-common (188) unstable; urgency=medium

  * pg_ctlcluster, pg_createcluster, pg_upgradecluster: Use lchown instead
    of chown to mitigate privilege escalation via symlinks. (CVE-2017-8806.
    Related to CVE-2017-12172 in PostgreSQL; extends our earlier fix for
    CVE-2016-1255.)
  * dh_make_pgxs: Add options to set package name and version.
  * pg_lsclusters: Raise error when called on a specific cluster that does not
    exist. This was the behavior before the "accept dead postgresql.conf
    symlinks" change, but not coded explicitly.
