 postgresql-common (43.1) dapper; urgency=low
   * Upload to Dapper to get a plethora of bug fixes; no new major features,
     just some small improvements.
 postgresql-common (43) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/postgresql-common.cron.d: Update documentation for 8.1 and correct
     paths in it. Closes: #351891
   * pg_createcluster: Fix typos in POD. Closes: #351835
   * debian/postgresql-common.dirs: Add /var/lib/postgresql to ensure that the
     postgres user always has an existant home directory. Closes: #351985
   * debian/supported-versions, lsb_debian(): Add 'testing'. Closes: #353754
   *, change_ugid():
     - Suppress warning on nonexistant user names.
     - Do not split group list at comma; getgrent already converts commas in
       /etc/groups to spaces, and splitting on commas breaks pam-ldap
       environments. Thanks to Chmouel Boudjnah.
     - Closes: #353674
   * pg_wrapper: Set PGSYSCONFDIR to /etc/postgresql-common if it is unset, to
     provide a sane default for the location of pg_service.conf.
     Closes: #353832
   * pg_dropcluster: Remove /etc/postgresql/<version> and
     /var/lib/postgresql/<version> if empty.
   * t/ Added check_clean() method to test for empty PostgreSQL
     related directories and processes, and use it in all tests.
   * pg_dropcluster: Remove default log file. This avoids leaving it behind if
     the log file directory was changed in postgresql.conf.
 postgresql-common (42) unstable; urgency=low
   *, change_ugid(): Implement initgroups() like behaviour to allow
     running the postmaster in auxiliary groups. This is necessary for e. g.
     reading shared SSL certificates.
   * t/, exec_as(): Also change group id, in order to be able to read
     SSL certificates which are only group readable (which previously caused
     the test suite to fail).
   * debian/supported-versions: Add lsb_release output case 'unstable' to cope
     with recent lsb-release change. Closes: #351475
 postgresql-common (41) unstable; urgency=low
   * pg_createcluster: Make the definition of 'cluster already exists' less
     strict: check for files that indicate a cluster configuration instead of
     requiring the directory to be completely empty.
   * debian/maintscripts-functions, configure_version(): Improve check for
     already existing clusters to not catch subdirectories with non-cluster
     files (e. g. a single *.old and similar).
   * pg_ctlcluster: Add option -o to pass parameters to the postmaster process.
   * debian/postgresql-common.postinst: Avoid error message from ls if
     /usr/lib/postgresql does not exist.
   *, cluster_info(): Respect log_{directory,filename} settings;
     only use Debian's log directory if neither is set. Thanks to Scott Chapman
     for discovering this issue.
   * pg_ctlcluster: Create the log file if it does not yet exist; this ensures
     that we always know the file postmaster really uses and avoids the race
     condition with nonexisting files if log_filename contains time macros.
   * pg_createcluster: Explain possibility of overriding the log symlink with
     log_* in postgresql.conf.
   * architecture.html: Fix some typos, remove obsolete pg_upgradecluster
 postgresql-common (40) unstable; urgency=low
   * debian/supported-versions: Add 8.1 to Ubuntu 5.10 to properly support
   * If /etc/postgresql-common/user_clusters does not exist, use
     the default cluster instead of returning an invalid value. Also, do not
     complain if the file does not exist (which is legitime). Closes: #348447
   * debian/README.Debian: Fix 'detailled' typo. Closes: #346442
   * Replace most calls to get_conf_value() with the much more efficient new
     function read_cluster_conf_file().
   * pg_upgradecluster: Factorized and cleaned up parameter deprecation/upgrade
   * Support auxiliary environment variables for postmaster:
     - pg_createcluster: Create /etc/postgresql/version/cluster/environment
       file (empty, just a comment).
     - pg_dropcluster: Remove environment file.
     - pg_ctlcluster: Clear environment and only set variables mentioned in
       environment file and LANG/LC_ALL.
     - Closes: #345516
   * t/020_create_sql_remove.t: Check save environment and correct function of
     the environment file.
   *, next_free_port(): Check if the port is already in use, skip
     it if so. Closes: #348875.
   * t/090_multicluster.t: Create a socket bound to port 5434 and check that it
     is not used by pg_createcluster.
