== Patch applicate ==
Tom Lane committed:

- In pgsql/src/bin/initdb/initdb.c, fix initdb to reject a relative
 path for -X (--xlogdir) argument.  This doesn't work, and the real
 reason why not is it's unclear where the path is relative to
 (initdb's CWD, or the data directory?).  We could make an arbitrary
 decision, but it seems best to make the user be unambiguous.  Per
 gripe from Devrim.

- In pgsql/src/interfaces/ecpg/ecpglib/prepare.c, remove unused
 variable (was already done in HEAD).

- In pgsql/doc/src/sgml/release.sgml, draft release notes for upcoming
 back-branch updates.

- In pgsql/src/backend/utils/adt/ruleutils.c, fix pg_get_ruledef() so
 that negative numeric constants are parenthesized.  This is needed
 because :: casting binds more tightly than minus, so for example
 -1::integer is not the same as (-1)::integer, and there are cases
 where the difference is important.  In particular this caused a
 failure in SELECT DISTINCT ... ORDER BY ... where expressions that
 should have matched were seen as different by the parser; but I
 suspect that there could be other cases where failure to
 parenthesize leads to subtler semantic differences in reloaded
 rules.  Per report from Alexandr Popov.

- In pgsql/doc/src/sgml/release.sgml, update release notes for 8.3.3
 et al.

Michael Meskes committed:

- In ecpg, added lost sysmbol SQL_SQL to list of allowed variable

- In ecpg, added symbol SQL to list of allowed variables.

Alvaro Herrera committed:

- Change xlog.h to xlogdefs.h in bufpage.h, and fix fallout.
