Bug Description

[Impact]

sosreport does collect postgresql data.
The auto-package detection doesn't seems to work when postgresql is involve.

The postgresql configuration files should be collected by sosreport on instances that run postgresql databases (Useful in a support context for Landscape On-Premises, etc ...)

[Test case]

# Synchronize the package index files from system sources.
 apt-get update

# Install sosreport

# Make sure postgresql is installed on the system.

# Run sosreport
 sosreport -a

# Look at the generated "sosreport*.tar.xz" file under /tmp for postgresql specfic content.

** Using 'sosreport -o postgresql' works well because the plugin is specifically mention, and not expecting to auto-detect postgresql. **

[Regression Potential]

* TBD
