The following documentation comment has been logged on the website:

Page: https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.6/static/pgupgrade.html
Description:

Hello,

Please correct following part of pg_upgrade documentation:
`You can also specify user and port values, and whether you want the data
linked instead of copied (the default).`

It is not clear what is the default option. If you read the whole sentence,
then context might be misinterpreted to `data linked instead of copied` is
default but you meant that copying is default. Please correct this as it is
confusing and can lead someone to big troubles.

My suggestion:
- completely omit confusing default word:
`You can also specify user and port values, and whether you want the data
linked instead of copied.`

Thank you.

Cheers,
Marek
