#991 closed enhancement (fixed)

Set remaining bits in type byte to zero

Reported by: pramsey Owned by: strk
Priority: high Milestone: PostGIS 2.0.0
Component: postgis Version: master
Keywords: Cc:


To enable clean us of extra bits in GSERIALIZED type byte, set them to zero by default and ensure that is the case. They can be used for something else (versioning? anondata flag?) in the future that way.

I'm taking a look at what does this involve. Seems important to me.

It seems to me we're fine here. All code writing type is copying an uint32_t value verbatim after checking it to match existing type macros. Any unknown value would trigger an error. Known values are up to 15.
