[Pkg-postgresql-public] Bug#697239: postgresql-common: documentation is off-by-one-debian-release

Package: postgresql-common
Version: 134wheezy2
Severity: normal


/usr/share/doc/postgresql-common/README.Debian.gz in wheezy assumes
8.4 is the up-to-date postgresql version and 8.3 is the previous so
for example the updating cluster documentation upgrades from 8.3 to
8.4 (and not from 8.4 to 9.1) ponentially doing bad things to systems
if the administrator doesn't pay close atention and just copy&pasts
the instructions (which he, of course, shouldn't do but)

Are we too late already for doc updates or do you think this should be
fixed for wheezy?
