[postgis-users] where to report bugs?

You followed the best practice to report it. Trac is officially a bug

Best way to get it fixed is to stomp it into a Github pull request with
minimized version of your case in regress suite.
Somewhere in here:
https://github.com/postgis/postgis/tree/master/raster/test/regress - press
"Edit" on a file and post a branch with that issue.
After that, commit it as a pull request. CI (Travis) will run it and
produce a non-optimized backtrace. It usually helps a tiny bit
more, letting you understand what went wrong through all the "optimized

Reasons why your report is hanging for now are:
 - people have lives and postgis is a hobby;
 - nobody really dug deep into raster codebase in last years, so you have a
perfect opportunity to become world's best expert;
 - it's synthetic query by a tool designed to break stuff, meaning there's
no human being that wrote that query who you can empathize with to get
thing fixed.

I've looked at your query and it looks like the whole report should have
been just one line:

select st_union(null::raster, 4);
server closed the connection unexpectedly
       This probably means the server terminated abnormally
       before or while processing the request.
