If we chose to use the same account as for installation, the installer throws notice:
Notice: Undefined variable: exists in D:\Projects\MediaWiki branches\1.17\includes\installer\PostgresInstaller.php on line 299
and then refuses to continue with the following message:
The specified user "postgres" does not exist. Please click the "create account" checkbox below if you want to create it.
Apparently, some recent fixes weren't backported.
Per IRC, I'm not convinced we should block 1.17 for this. In the name of more frequent releases, I would rather warn PostgreSQL users that this release has issues and work on making 1.18 better.
This seems to already be fixed in trunk, $exists is now defined unconditionally, just need to peg the rev and backport.
Looks like tarball was made of pre r89823 code. Assigning to Tim so he is aware of the problem.
Sorry, my bad. Looks like r89855 wasn't merged to 1.17 branch.
Merged in r90104
