Google Code-In 2018 - Halftime

The PostgreSQL Project participates in Google Code-In (GCI) 2018. This is a program which allows pre-university students to pick up tasks defined by the partnering open source projects, learn about these projects, and also win a prize (certificates, t-shirts, hoodies, but also a trip to Google HQ).

 

Every project creates a number different tasks, some technical, some design based, some about updating documentation, or validating bugs. Whatever is useful in order to get to know the project better. Students can select tasks and submit their work. Mentors from the project then evaluate the work, and either approve it or send it back to the student because more work is needed.

 

Now we are halfway into this year's competition, it's time to run the numbers.

Using Makefiles to build PostgreSQL

For a long time I was using a Makefile to quickly build, start, stop and then wipe a predefined PostgreSQL version. That comes handy if you just want to test something on an older version, without actually installing the software. Everything happens in a single directory, even a different port is assigned.

When I needed that setup recently, I ran into unrelated build errors:

relpath.c:21:10: fatal error: catalog/pg_tablespace_d.h: No such file or directory
 #include "catalog/pg_tablespace_d.h"
          ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.

Can't be - pg_tablespace_d.h is included in the tarball I'm using.
