More Slony work

I have been way way too busy to do substantial Slony work in a while. Very very engaged on internal (infernal?) DB apps work.

At long last I reached a certain degree of completion that allowed me a breather, and a little time to look at Slony 2.0 issues.

I have been experimenting with Git lately, in several contexts, so pulled the PostgreSQL Git repo, with a view to using that as my “PostgreSQL HEAD” for testing. While the “official” PG version for our apps is 8.3, I usually do my builds/tests on either 8.4 or CVS HEAD, or, I guess, now, Git “master” ;-).

After checking out Git master, I found problems with both the internal app (minor thing in accessing information_Schema) and, alas, Slony :-(. A function now has 3 arguments (and, in the Klingon tradition, always wins them!), thus needing a bit of autoconf remediation. I hate autoconf… But absent some substantial Tilbrook contributions, that won’t be changing soon! 🙁

I surely hope I can run through a set of regression tests this coming week so as to get 2.0.3 released!
