We don't and so having one just allows people to make invalid assumptions. This possibility was known when the discussion at pgCon happened and, IIUC, the decision to use 10.0 was made. And this thread went on for quite a while prior to that. Lets let this die, please. Or at worse wait until we open HEAD up for 10.0 and someone commits the fully fleshed out versioning changes to the docs. David J.
