We still have some release-stoppper items on this list.

I need to integrate the cidr type into the system.  


Possible additions
cidr/IP address type(Tom Helbekkmo)
rewrite system(Jan)
notify fixes(Tom)

Serious Bugs
change pg args for platforms that don't support argv changes
	(setproctitle()?, sendmail hack?)
have psql dump out rules text with new function
man pages/sgml synchronization
generate html/postscript documentation
generate postmaster pid file and remove flock/fcntl lock code
CREATE TABLE test (x text, s serial) fails if no database creation permission
SELECT * FROM pg_rules WHERE pg_rules.oid = pg_class.oid crashes
handle oid's on views by either disallowing it or meaningful results
CREATE INDEX i_test ON pg_class (upper(relname)) fails

New Bugs
cnf-ify still can exhaust memory, make SET KSQO more generic
permissions on indexes:  what do they do?  should it be prevented?
low level locking - work-in-progress for 6.5
improve reporting of syntax errors by showing location of error in query
use index with constants on functions
allow chaining of pages to allow >8k tuples
allow multiple generic operators in expressions without the use of parentheses
document/trigger/rule so changes to pg_shadow create pg_pwd
large objects orphanage
improve group handling
no min/max for oid type
