Lists: pgsql-hackers
Looking over the list of open items, it seems we are on target for a
November 1 release.  I think that is the date Marc had in mind, and it
looks like we are in good shape, assuming I can fix the "vacuum crash"

I don't think we can release without the 'ps' args fix, and we can't
turn that off because it caused by the fork() removal I did long ago.


test new cidr/IP address type(Tom Helbekkmo)
complete rewrite system changes(Jan)
CREATE TABLE test (x text, s serial) fails if no database creation permission
regression test all platforms
vacuum crash

Serious Items
change pg args for platforms that don't support argv changes
	(setproctitle()?, sendmail hack?)

man pages/sgml synchronization
generate html/postscript documentation
make sure all changes are documented properly

Minor items
cnf-ify still can exhaust memory, make SET KSQO more generic
permissions on indexes:  what do they do?  should it be prevented?
multi-verion concurrency control - work-in-progress for 6.5
improve reporting of syntax errors by showing location of error in query
use index with constants on functions
allow chaining of pages to allow >8k tuples
allow multiple generic operators in expressions without the use of parentheses
document/trigger/rule so changes to pg_shadow create pg_pwd
large objects orphanage
improve group handling
no min/max for oid type
improve PRIMARY KEY handling
generate postmaster pid file and remove flock/fcntl lock code
