#1627 closed enhancement (fixed)
package tiger_geocoder as a PostgreSQL extension
|Reported by:||robe||Owned by:||robe|
Right now this is the only part that can't be installed as an extension. Part of the reason for that is that the upgrade script actually changes user data though the raw install script would be fairly trivial to have as an extension. There isn't much point though if it can't be upgraded easily.

This is functioning as of r10934. So now it is possible to
CREATE EXTENSION postgis_tiger_geocoder;
And if you have latest 2.1.0 installed without using an extension convert to extension model with
CREATE EXTENSION postgis_tiger_geocoder FROM unpackaged;
I still need to stress test, update the docs, and also implement the
UPDATE EXTENSION logic before I can consider this closed.

I've updated the docs. http://postgis.net/docs/manual-dev/postgis_installation.html#install_tiger_geocoder_extension
Nice thing about extensions is that if you forget the dependencies it won't let you install and will warn you with a "extension requires fuzzystrmatch" etc.
I'm going to close this out and create a separate ticket to create an upgrade path. That will take me more time to write up and test.
Started work on this at r10383
