      .A new module stream: `postgresql:16`

      RHEL 8.10 introduces PostgreSQL 16, which provides a number of new features and enhancements over version 15.

      Notable enhancements include:

      * Enhanced bulk loading improves performance.

      * The `libpq` library now supports connection-level load balancing. You can use the new `load_balance_hosts` option for more efficient load balancing.

      * You can now create custom configuration files and include them in the `pg_hba.conf` and `pg_ident.conf` files.

      * PostgreSQL now supports regular expression matching on database and role entries in the `pg_hba.conf` file.

      Other changes include:

      * PostgreSQL is no longer distributed with the `postmaster` binary. Users who start the `postgresql` server by using the provided `systemd` unit file (the `systemctl start postgres` command) are not affected by this change. If you previously started the `postgresql` server directly through the `postmaster` binary, you must now use the `postgres` binary instead.

      * PostgreSQL no longer provides documentation in PDF format within the package. Use the link:https://www.postgresql.org/files/documentation/pdf/16/postgresql-16-US.pdf[online documentation] instead.

      See also https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/deploying_different_types_of_servers/using-databases#using-postgresql_using-databases[Using PostgreSQL].

      To install the `postgresql:16` stream, use the following command:

      [literal]
      ----
      # yum module install postgresql:16
      ----

      If you want to upgrade from an earlier `postgresql` stream within RHEL 8, follow the procedure described in link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html-single/installing_managing_and_removing_user-space_components/index#switching-to-a-later-stream_managing-versions-of-appstream-content[Switching to a later stream] and then migrate your PostgreSQL data as described in https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html-single/deploying_different_types_of_servers/index#migrating-to-a-rhel-8-version-of-postgresql_using-postgresql[Migrating to a RHEL 8 version of PostgreSQL].

      Description

      Based on BU feedback, there is already enough demand for a new PostgreSQL 16 version.

      This is a request to include a new stream (module) into RHEL-8, that will deliver:

      • PostgreSQL server 16 and client
      • plugins we've had in PostgreSQL 15 (postgresql, pgaudit, postgres-decoderbufs, pg_repack)
      • Container image for OpenShift, meant to be used for development mostly (single server, basic features)
