[pgrouting-users] Bug in pgr_pointsasPolygon

Hello Dave,

I must note that pgr_pointsAsPolygon calls pgr_alphaShape internally. So
you might be getting an alpha shape.
Might be confising giving the fact that you want a polygon not an alpha
The revision of both functions is still pending, that is: those have not
being rewritten to match the code's standards that its being implemented
during the 2.x series of pgRouting.
Can you post the found bug in github issues please. So when the rewrite is
done we don't forget to cover the issue.
On the mean time I will try to replicate with the file you sent
