Announcing Release 15 of the PostgreSQL Buildfarm client


  • add a new script that lets the user enable or disable alerts for an animal
    This is especially useful in the case of animals that have stopped running for some reason.
  • check if a branch is up to date before trying to run it
    This only applies if the branches_to_build setting is a keyword rather than a list of branches. It reduces the number of useless calls to git pull to almost zero.
  • require Perl version 5.14 or later
    This should not be a problem, as it's more than 10 years old.
  • add --avoid-ts-collisions command line parameter
    This is for specialized uses, and imposes a penalty of a few seconds per run. already does this, so it's not required for normal operations.
  • run TAP tests for src/interfaces subdirectories
  • add amcheck and extension upgrade tests to cross version upgrade testing
  • adjust to changes in postgres code, file locations, etc.
  • assorted minor bug fixes and tweaks

The release can be downloaded from or

Upgrading is highly recommended.
