Change logs for postgresql-common source package in Bionic

  • postgresql-common (190) unstable; urgency=medium
      * Move packaging repository to
      * pg_lsclusters: Add --help.
      * pg_virtualenv: Error out if no server packages are installed.
      * postgresql-common recommends e2fsprogs, we are using chattr in
        pg_createcluster. (Closes: #887251)
      * Fix include directives parser, spotted by ironhalik, thanks!
      * postgresql@.service: Set Timeoutstart=0, which is the same as infinity,
        but works on older systemd versions as well.
      * Rewrite architecture.html as
      * t/006_next_free_port.t: Drop -q argument from netcat, nmap-ncat.rpm
        doesn't have it.
      * t/032_ssl_key_permissions.t: Adjust for 9.4 in oldstable which still has
        the old permissions check.

  • postgresql-common (189) unstable; urgency=medium
      [ Chris Lamb ]
      * Update README.Debian for postgresql-10. (Closes: #876438)
      [ Christoph Berg ]
      * dh_make_pgxs: Use PostgreSQL license as default, fix extension name.
      * Modernize README.Debian's version numbers and SSL instructions.
      * postgresql@.service: Ignore startup failure, recovery might take
        arbitrarily long to finish. The actual service status still correctly
        reflects if the postmaster process is running.
      * supported-versions: Version 10 on Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic). (Closes: #881501)
      * debian/maintscripts-functions: bump update-alternatives priority of
        version 1x to 1x0.
      * Unsupport 9.2 on
      * t/140_pg_config.t: Also test /usr/bin/pg_config.libpq-dev, and check
        MKDIR_P and abs_top_build/srcdir in

  • postgresql-common (188ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium

        fixing autopkgtest failures due to warnings on stderr.

  • 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
      * 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.

  • postgresql-common (187) unstable; urgency=medium
      * Consistently call psql -X. (Closes: #877920)
      * Update pt translation, thanks Ricardo Silva! (Closes: #872430)
      * pg_virtualenv: Drop "BUG" message that really just means that
        pg_createcluster threw an error.
      * pg_createcluster: Drop new cluster if --start was requested and starting
      * pg_createcluster: If not running as postgres or root, don't attempt to
        install config and data parent directories with owner postgres.
      * pg_lsclusters, postgresql-generator, get_version_clusters, cluster_info,
        read_conf_file: Accept dead postgresql.conf symlinks, filesystem might not
        be mounted yet.
      * pg_virtualenv: Fix version comparison when determining newest PG major.
      * pg_updatedicts, postgresql-common.postinst: Create tsearch dictionaries on
        first install and set umask for correct permissions. (Closes: #868232)
        Thanks to Christian Ehrhardt for the analysis!
      * Demote postgresql-common hunspell/myspell triggers to noawait.

  • postgresql-common (184ubuntu1) artful; urgency=medium
      * Fix umask in pg_updatedicts, without which /var/cache/postgresql
        may be created with permissions that leave it inaccessible to postgresql
