Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org at packages.debian.org
Usertags: transition


we currently have PostgreSQL 9.3 in unstable/testing. PostgreSQL 9.4.0
will be releasing around September. 9.4~beta1 is already in
experimental, and 9.4~beta2 will release next Thursday.

Our plan is to upload this beta2 of postgresql-9.4 to unstable, and
set the 9.4 as the only supported PostgreSQL version as per
/usr/share/postgresql-common/supported-versions. postgresql-9.3 will
stay in unstable (and testing) until all dependencies have been moved
to 9.4. This is mostly just recompiling the extension module packages;
most will adjust to the new version automatically.

I've tested most of the "interesting" packages, most of them do not
have any issues with 9.4. For a handful, fixes have already been made
upstream, pending new releases, and some need some trivial debian/
updating. All in all, atm there is only one package (pg-reorg) which I
know isn't 9.4-ready, and that's probably just a matter of pinging
upstream (TBD).

As with the other PostgreSQL server packages, we will provide new
minor versions as upstream releases them, so jessie should be
releasing with something like 9.4.2, which sounds like a nice target.

I believe this transition should only require little (if any) release
team attention (no group of packages should need to enter testing in
parallel), though of course we'd like your opinion. Does this plan
look sane?

Ben file:

title = "postgresql-9.4";
is_affected = .depends ~ /postgresql.*-9.[34].*/;
is_good = .depends ~ /postgresql.*-9.4.*/;
is_bad = .depends ~ /postgresql.*-9.3.*/;
