Release 14 of the PostgreSQL Buildfarm client

 This is to announce release 14 of the PostgreSQL Buildfarm client.

Significant changes:

  • don't run TestUpgrade if TAP tests are present in src/bin/pg_upgrade
  • Add proposed new location of pg_upgrade logs in TestUpgrade module
  • Use an HMAC over the whole content as the signature.
  • Quote PROVE_FLAGS in case there are multiple settings
  • tighten failure detection for cross version upgrade
  • be more verbose about git mirror failures
  • Support symlinks on Windows where possible in SCM module
  • Document rm_worktrees setting and make on the default.
  • Add new branches_to_build keywords STABLE and OLD
Because of the changes to how pg_upgrade logging works, owners are strongly urged to upgrade to the new release as soon as possible if they are running the TestUpgrade module. 
The meaning of the branches_to_build keywords are as follows: STABLE means all the live branches other than master/HEAD, while OLD means those branches older than STABLE that we are now supporting limited builds for (currently REL9_2_STABLE through REL9_6_STABLE).
