Package: icinga2-common
Version: 2.6.0-2
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

/usr/share/icinga2/include/plugins-contrib.d/databases.conf defines a couple of 
CheckCommands for databases. The one defined for postgres references 
[ PluginContribDir + "/check_postgres.pl" ] as command but the check_postgres 
package in Debian installs to /usr/bin/check_postgres; so the following patch 
should fix this:
