 > Hi Natalia and Simon,

 on it.
 > - Do we refference the release notes for version 5.0, specifically
 https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/5.0/releases/5.0/#models ?
 > - Do we refference the documentation of the F()
 https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/5.0/releases/5.0/#models ?
 > Simon, can you share the commit related to "I'm fairly certain this
 relates to a commit meant to address a SQLite crash and a DDOS vector on
 Postgres only present in 5.0" in order to mention it in the docs

 dde2537fbb04ad78a673092a931b449245a2d6ae is the commit I was referring to,
 we don't refer to commits or ticket numbers in docs though.

 I think the existing documentation is clear enough that
 `ExpressionWrapper` might be necessary in these cases, the only admonition
 I would add, assuming we believe it might be valuable is a note in
 [https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/5.0/releases/5.0/#miscellaneous the
 miscellaneous section] of the 5.0 release notes mentioning that explicit
 `ExpressionWrapper` wrapping might be necessary for integer field
 arithmetic that can overflow while it wasn't the case in previous release
 by referencing at the documentation mentioned in comment:2.
