I've been asked about my opinion on backup strategy and best practices, and it so happens that I have some kind of an opinion on the matter.
PostgreSQL Hackers mailing lists,
Andrew Dunstan just proposed some
new options for
pg_restore to ease our lives. One of the
answers was talking about some scripts available to exploit the
listing that you play with using options
-L, or the long name
pg_staging tool allows you to easily
exploit those lists too.
If you don't remember about what pg_staging is all about, it's a central console from where to control all your PostgreSQL databases. Typically you use it to manage your development and pre-production setup, where developers ask you pretty often to install them some newer dump from the production, and you want that operation streamlined and easy.
At pgday there was this form you could fill to give speakers some feedback about their talks. And that's a really nice way as a speaker to know what to improve. And as Magnus was searching a nice looking chart facility in python and I spoke about matplotlib, it felt like having to publish something.
