> I assume whatever user is running the postgres process must have the bucardo authentication information in its .pgpass for it to function correctly (even if the user is not postgres) because the postgres process is using the pl/perl  extension to call the bucardo scripts and therefore assumes the home of that user?  I am trying to wrap my head around how the application functions.

Yup, that’s correct.  Technically it probably needs to be in both the “bucardo" user and the “postgres" user’s accounts, as both users would need database connections (bucardo with the “bucardo” tool, and postgres with the pl/perl functions).
