On 14th of December 2022, Jeff Davis committed patch:
Add grantable MAINTAIN privilege and pg_maintain role.
Allows VACUUM, ANALYZE, REINDEX, REFRESH MATERIALIZED VIEW, CLUSTER,
and LOCK TABLE.
Effectively reverts 4441fc704d. Instead of creating separate
privileges for VACUUM, ANALYZE, and other maintenance commands, group
them together under a single MAINTAIN privilege.

Title: On 9th of December 2022, Tom Lane committed patch:
Add test scaffolding for soft error reporting from input functions.
pg_input_is_valid() returns boolean, while pg_input_error_message()
returns the primary error message if the input is bad, or NULL
if the input is OK. The main reason for having two functions is
so that we can test both the details-wanted and the no-details-wanted
Although these are primarily designed with testing in mind,
it could well be that they'll be useful to end users as well.
This patch is mostly by me, but it owes very substantial debt to
earlier work by Nikita Glukhov, Andrew Dunstan, and Amul Sul.
Thanks to Andres Freund for review.
