Hey Christoph,

That would essentially commit all the packaged extensions to get
ported to 9.4 in time. Most will probably just work as usual, but
there's always those "special" ones like PL/R or PostGIS which take
longer to port. Do you have a gut feeling how much 9.4's internal
interfaces changed to 9.3, i. e. whether it's realistic to port all
extensions in time?

Otherwise, sounds good to me.

Thanks, and have a good weekend!
