JoshStrobl moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.
JoshStrobl added a subscriber: JoshStrobl.

This subtree contains porting tools, analysis utilities, and plug-in features that are not part of the core PostgreSQL system, mainly because they address a limited audience or are too experimental to be part of the main source tree.

If someone wants to actually filter through these and make sure there is a contrib sub-package, go for it.

Just for clarification, should there be a package for each module, say for example "postgresql-contrib-hstore" or one package "postgresql-contrib" package with everything?

I guess postgresql-contrib is enough.

JoshStrobl added a project: Needs Maintainer.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for 6 months now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.

FWIW this is implemented in D2442
