The PL/pgSQL debugger included in pgadmin needs a bunch of server-side 
support functions to be installed in the server. The code for the 
server-side functions is currently located in a pgfoundry CVS 
repository, in the edb-debugger project.

It's time to give that code facelift. I have converted the CVS 
repository to git using git-cvsimport, now available at 
git:// After that, I did a lot of 
cleanup and refactoring. The functionality should be unchanged, and it 
should still work against older server versions.

The CVS repository also contained a plugin_profiler thingie, that was 
not related to plugin_debugger. I removed that. It might be a useful 
project, but I don't think anyone has really looked at it for years, and 
it really ought to be a separate project and repository, since it 
doesn't have anything to do with the debugger plugin. If someone wants 
to resurrect that code, it can be dug from the history of the git 

There's still plenty of cleanup that could be done to the plugin, but 
this is a good start.

The plugin doesn't have a mailing list of its own, and AFAIK pgadmin is 
the only consumer of that API, so let's keep pldebugger related 
discussions on this mailing list.
