PostgreSQL RPM Set Update 

Version(s): 7.3.8, 7.4.6

New set labels: 7.3.8-2PGDG, 7.4.6-2PGDG
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

- ---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Info:

Due to a security bug in RPM sets, new RPM sets for 7.4.6 and 7.3.8 have 
been released. They are available in FTP site and synched mirrors. Due to 
the seriousness of the bug, it is strongly recommended that administrators 
upgrade their database servers at their earliest convenience.

Also, some minor changes have been applied to the spec files.

It should be noted that, for those looking to upgrade from a 7.4.0/7.4.1 
server to 7.4.6, that there a dump-n-reload is *recommended* (but not 
required) to address a fix introduced between 7.4.1 and 7.4.2. Please 
refer to the 7.4.6 HISTORY file for information on how this can be 
accomplished without a dump-n-reload, as there are steps that can be 
followed for this.

7.4.6-2 set also includes RPMs for RHAS 2.1, thanks to Gaetano Mendola for 
the effort.

These sets include RPMs and SRPMs for Fedora Core 1, Fedore Core 2, Red 
Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0, Red Hat Linux 9 and Red Hat Advanced Server 2.1. 
md5sums are also provided with the packages.
