Testers needed for proposed 9.3 SEPostgreSQL enhancements

SELinux / SEPostgreSQL users: There are some proposed improvements in the 2013-01 commitfest that might go into PostgreSQL 9.3 – but only if you help.

Interested users are needed to try out the following patches and report back with their experiences if you want to see these changes in 9.3:

The patches are:

Add a new event type of object_access_hook named OAT_POST_ALTER. This allows extensions to catch controls just after system catalogs are updated. Patch also adds sepgsql permission check capability on some ALTER commands, but not all.
