Default Security fix leads to PostgreSQL lock down

From http://h-online.com/-1832846

Quote:
The developers of the open source PostgreSQL relational database have announced that they are locking down access to the PostgreSQL repositories to only committers while a fix for a "sufficiently bad" security issue applied to the code. The lock down is temporary and will be lifted once the next release of the open source database is available. The measure should help ensure that bad actors cannot monitor the source code changes in the database and craft an exploit to the unidentified flaw until there are fixed packages available for users to install.
