[Slackbuilds-users] Changes Postgresql SBo scripts as version numbering has changed?

As Postgresql number scheme has changed with version 10 (and going 
forward), and only the first number is the major version number, I was 
wondering if it is worth amending the SBo scripts to reflect that. The 
data dir, bin dir and log dir usually need to only be prefixed with the 
major number, not the full version - to help with upgrades from one 
major version to another.

I would have made a patch myself, but I got a bit lost on how the old 
SBo scripts used to use the full (e.g. 9.6.2) version in 
postgresql.SlackBuild, yet end up with only the major version (e.g. 9.6) 
further down the line, in rc.postgresql, setup.postgresql and other 
scripts - so maybe someone can help?
