Re: Contrib files

Hi Chris,

I noticed when I was running tests and writing a script I have been
working on that the contrib files for OpenBSD (and another operating

I saw that all of the files are named like this:

not tsearch2.sql, pg_trgm.sql, etc.

I just did a ln -s for the testing.
But what is the situation with other OS's?
Is this name change common or just in a few places?

I'm guessing the PostgreSQL version you were using back then was lower than 9.1 and you're now using 9.1 or higher? This seems to be part of the name change that's been going on in PostgreSQL for contrib naming and versioning.
Does anything need to change to reflect this?
Generally, yes: instead of loading the extension file, on 9.1+ you should use the commands "CREATE EXTENSION <extension name>".
