     28== Important note (benoitg 2007-07-21) == 
     29While I definitely salute the effort above, I must point out the following 
     30 * '''Schema updates to installed servers'''  Every developer that commits a schema update by definition "tested" the update (and any who doesn't is immediately and violently chastised.  So saying that a revision is "tested" is totally useless unless you include the php version (php --version) and more importantly the postgresql version (pgsql --version, can vary by distribution) 
     31 * '''Schema install from scratch'''  Those aren't tested quite as often by developers.  Furthermore, the code paths to update and to install from scratch are totally different.  Make sure you point out if you UPGRADED to revision X, or installed using revision X. 
     32  * If you submit a bug report about a failed NEW install, please do the following: 
     33{{{ 
     34cd YOUR_WIFIDOG_AUTH_CHECKOUT/sql 
     35sudo su postgres 
     36dropdb wifidog (Make SURE this is a new install, this will promptly and irremediably destroy an existing install) 
     37psql -f wifidog-postgres-schema.sql 
     38--The wifidog developers need the ENTIRE output of that command. 
     39dropdb wifidog 
     40}}} 
     41 * '''Postgresql 7.4''':  While we try to keep is working, it's definitely not "supported" unless you are willing to work with the developers to fix schema update problems.  The supported versions are 8.0 and later (8.0 was released in January of 2005, none of the developers use 7.4 anymore)
