Hi,

This is just a heads up for you who uses postgresql.

I am upgrading postgres to 8.4. This will require that you manually
pg_dumpall *before* the upgrade. The .pre-upgrade script will abort the
upgrade if it detects older than 8.4 running, displaying the following
information:

* You are upgrading to postgres 8.4 wich is not compatible with the running
* See: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.4/interactive/install-upgrading.html
*
* The corresponding steps for Alpine Linux is:
*
*  pg_dumpall -U postgres > dumpfile
*  /etc/init.d/postgresql stop
*  apk add -u postgresql
*  /etc/init.d/postgresql setup
*  /etc/init.d/postgresl start
*  psql -U postgres -f dumpfile
*
