Here is a newer version of the shared dependency patch. I keep the
previous description below. Changes from the previous version are:
- Removed several bogus elog(NOTICE)
- Groups are checked at deletion for dependencies
- I noticed a couple of tests (cluster and privileges) were leaving
orphaned objects, so with this patch they would leave users behind.
(consequently, future runs of the tests would fail).
- Added simple regression testing.
New files are
Comments are welcome.
