Provide both mysql and postgresql support using loadable maps patch
Last modified: 2016-07-20 09:41:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Postfix provides support for the MySQL database. It would be nice if it
supported both MySQL and Postgresql using dynamically loadable modules, packaged
separately. The Debian project ships a patch that provides this feature. See
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
% ldd /usr/sbin/postfix
libmysqlclient.so.15 => /usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.15 (0x1fd85000)
Core binaries are not linked against MySQL. MySQL support could be implemented
in a loadable module that is packaged separately.
While Michael's proposal is more elegant, I offer a (obvious) second approach: provide two packages: postfix-mysql and postfix-pqsql. It is VERY frustrating to have absolutely no postgresql support for postfix under fedora (forcing us to build from source).
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
AFAIK this feature got upstreamed and we already have it in Fedora, thus closing.
