Description Max Kanat-Alexander 2005-02-28 10:39:53 PST
The boolean charts try to do something like:

SUM(CONCAT(, flags_0.status::varchar) != 'review+')

(That's the boolean chart "Flag is not equal to review+".)

However, PostgreSQL throws an error when you try to do this:

"Function sum(boolean) does not exist"

Oh, by the way, ignore that "::varchar," that's a local customization. (That's
not in the tip

It turned out to be simpler than I expected - only one occurence of this
problem in the whole of bugzilla :-).
