All,

A tester correctly reported this:

========

But in the sample file, the "synchronous_standby_names" parameter is the
first parameter under the heading "- Streaming Replication - Server
Settings" while in the documentation, that parameter has its own
subsection 18.5.5 after the "streaming replication" section 18.5.4.
Since the rest of section 18.5.4 was more than a screenful in my
browser, at first glance i didn't spot 18.5.5 and was confused.

========

He is correct.  So, my question is, should the docs change, or should
postgresql.conf.sample change?
