The new version of 502.pgsql, uses variables set in /etc/periodic.conf to
handle the stuff previously set in ~pgsql/.profile.
The tasks performed are identical, i.e. it vacuums all databases and makes
backups to a backup directory.
If you have made your own modifications to 502.pgsql and you want to keep
running it instead of the new installed version, I suggest you rename
something else, like 503.pgsql or whatever, and set
daily_pgsql_vacuum_enable="NO" in /etc/periodic.conf.
Please check the script for more info, it's header is pretty informative.
