A thread on -general
(http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-general/2006-03/msg01023.php)
recently ended in the idea that the pgAdmin 'adminpack' be included as
an 'official' PostgreSQL contrib module. Currently the code is an add-on
available from the pgAdmin website, unless you run the Windows
pgInstaller distribution of PostgreSQL in which case it is already
included.

For those that don't know, the adminpack is a set of additional
functions designed to allow pgAdmin (and potentially any other client
application) the ability to rewrite server configuration files and
browse & read logfiles etc. The full readme can be found at
http://svn.pgadmin.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/trunk/pgadmin3/xtra/admin81/R
EADME.admin81?rev=5024&view=markup, and the code can be seen at
http://svn.pgadmin.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/trunk/pgadmin3/xtra/admin81/.

Tom's concern in the -general thread was that the pgAdmin licence is the
Artistic License, however we are now in a position to offer the code
under the BSD licence. So, how would people feel about including this as
a contrib module in the future, until(/if) equivalent functionality
becomes available in -core in some form?

Regards, Dave.
