#2630 new defect

Typo in UpdateGeometrySRID parameter name

Reported by: strk Owned by: robe
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS Fund Me
Component: postgis Version: 2.1.x
Keywords: Cc:


The signature is:

 catalogn_name varchar,
 schema_name varchar,
 table_name varchar,
 column_name varchar,
 new_srid_in integer

Changing the name of the first argument would require a DROP function…

Assigning to Regina as she feels it's ok to DROP :P

Change History (5)

BTW, should it be ST_UpdateGeometrySRID ?

I feel it's okay to drop in a minor release. I'm out to lunch in micro — it's borderline. In most cases I wouldn't unless it was causing problems like ambiguous name conflict.

no I will not name ST_, cause then I'd have to keep the old name anyway and also do the same with all the other management functions —

Massive renamings should only be done in major releases in my opinion where people can expect some non-backward compatibility.

oh and we never do renaming of args in micros — that's a big no no since some people used named args
