Hi Andreas, Adrian and Venkata,
Regarding "are you really going to downgrade again"?
The upgraded postgres will be bundled along with product code changes and
other products. So, if someone finds product issues, they will roll back
So, essentially, yes. One requirement of the roll out is that it be
possible to roll-back.
It is understood that the Bugs/CVEs will be reverted by the downgrade. In
any-case, the downgrade will be temporary till the issue is resolved and
the bundle upgraded again.

Do you see any major defects with the new version?
