I don't agree. I think we should fix as many of those as we can without
holding up the release. Having been (briefly) in charge of Another Open
Source Database's bug list, I've seen where ignoring pre-existing bugs
can lead, and it's not at all pretty.
These bugs strike me as especially pernicious and to need fixing before
8.4 release (but NOT before Beta):
* GiST picksplit (maybe GIN too?) can fail
* Perl/libxml incompatibility
* BUG #4721: bad side-effects of limiting number of clauses that
predtest will consider
* BUG #4694: uppercase path problem on Windows
This one is also really bad, but probably only Doc-patchable. However,
can SQL/XML really be said to be core functionality if it only works in
* BUG #4622: xpath only work in utf-8 server encoding
I'll also take a stab at this one, because it looks easy:
* contrib/intarray opclass definition needs updating
And Magnus fixed this one:
* Path separator consistency on Windows
The other "existing" bugs I think relate to extreme corner cases (e.g.
ENUMs of DOMAINS) and/or may be feature requests rather than bugs (e.g.
Cover Density Ranking) so I think can safely be put off until 8.4.1 or
