#1529: postgis alpha3 extension fails to install -- documentation

Comment(by robe):


 I seriously doubt it.  alpha3 is r9003 (after Bborie's change).  I
 discovered it when testing the package

 So I had to hand patch it by removing the ST_Aspixelaspolygon comment from
 the extension.

 The extension picks up documentation / function inconsistencies because
 both get installed together as a single transaction whereas the regular
 installs the comments get installed as a separate file.

 It still holds true that before we make a release we should test this.
 Right now extensions aren't tested by our regress system and its a little
 too late to discover them once we've declared an alpha.  It was the same
 issue with alpha1.

 I suppose we could have our regress install the comments as well to catch
 these consistencies.
