pg_standby auxiliary command Rejected Christopher Johnson Simon Riggs
simon says: capability already available - patch not needed in core
Fix Windows kludge in pg_standby Analyzing... Greg Stark Simon Riggs

Nobody

somebody says: Needs to be handled by someone who's Windows-knowledgeable
alvherre says: Magnus mentioned via IM that the kludge might have been working around the Windows stat() bug that Magnus just fixed; that needs to be investigated
simon says: The current code was put there by patch from Dave Page and was tested by him. AFAICS there is no bug and no patch, so I'm moving this off the queue until a patch arrives, recognising that it remains an open issue
dave says: The code works as-is, but I think Greg does have a valid point. I'm not sure this is the stat() bug however - that involved stat() returning old data, whereas what I saw when testing was the space for the file being pre-allocated and then the data being copied. The stat() bug would show a file size lower than the actual size as I understand it, this showed the full size before the copy completed.
Sorting writes during checkpoint On hold pending testing Takahiro Itagaki

Nobody

tgl says: updated patch here, but I need some performance proof to apply it
gsmith says: will take a look at quantifying potential improvement on another system in late May
SE-PostgreSQL Needs major work Kohei KaiGai

Nobody

alvherre says: this message updates the patches
tgl says: reviews here, here, here, and here
LDAPS support w/o TLS Needs revision Stephen Layland

Nobody

tgl says: I think this shouldn't use a GUC variable
mha says: I'm looking at a proposal that will change how pg_hba deals with the parameters, by name-values instead. Suggest we put this patch on hold until this proposal is ready, since it would require a different approach for the patch.
tgl says: Agreed --- in any case, the patch isn't getting committed as-is.
Add support for Renesas SuperH Waiting on author Nobuhiro Iwamatsu

Nobody

tgl says: Author has not responded to this complaint
Column Level Privileges Returned for rewrite Guodong Liu, Andrew Dunstan Nobody
tgl says: unfortunately it still needs a lot of work
Auto Partitioning Patch WIP version 1 Nikhil Sontakke Nobody
tgl says: What this is really waiting on is a roadmap for future partitioning features. Maybe it's a compatible first step, or maybe not
somebody says: March 2008 pgsql-patches thread
tgl says: Since there's no more roadmap now than there was in March, we still don't know what to do with this patch.
wildspeed contrib module Returned for rework Teodor Sigaev, Oleg Bartunov Nobody
tgl says: performance is just too awful at the moment, mainly because of index size
