Release 4.11 of PostgreSQL Buildfarm client

Version 4.11 of the PostgreSQL Buildfarm client has been released. It can be downloaded from

Changes since 4.10:

  • Turn down module cleanup verbosity
  • Add check for rogue postmasters.
  • Add pseudo-branch targets HEAD_PLUS_LATEST and HEAD_PLUS_LATEST2.
  • Use Digest::SHA instead of Digest::SHA1.
  • Make directory handling more robust in git code.
  • Move web transaction into a module procedure.
  • Switch to using the porcelain format of git status.
  • Provide parameter for core file patterns.
  • Use a command file for gdb instead of the -ex option

The web transaction and Digest::SHA changes have allowed the removal of a couple of long-standing uglinesses on the system. In almost all cases, the config parameter "aux_path" and the separate script are now redundant (the exception is older Msys systems).
