I know Tom Lane has done some work on pg_upgrade -- the last message was
on 8/2/99, and left the thread hanging.

What is the current status of pg_upgrade in 6.5.x??

I ask because the presence of a working pg_upgrade drastically reduces
the work necessary to get postgresql upgrading working prpoerly in an
RPM environment.  I particular, the upgrade from RedHat 6.0 to RedHat
6.1 is going to be from postgresql 6.4.2 to 6.5.1.  I do not forsee
anyone successfully upgrading a RedHat 5.x installation to 6.1, as other
things will break -- although I could be entirely wrong.

If pg_upgrade is hopelessly broken in 6.5.x, that's ok -- just means a
little more work.
