It looks like the official upgrade path for both is to the new OpenServer 10 from SCO's acquirers: http://xinuos.com/xinuos/news/247-news-xinuos-channel-buzz-openserver-10 http://www.xinuos.com/menu-products/openserver-10 It seems they are using virtualisation to help people migrate from the ancient System V-based releases, but OpenServer 10 is a FreeBSD derivative and has "support for the FreeBSD® Ports and Packages Collection". So we already support that without doing anything at all. The System V-based SCO operating systems are museum pieces and it wouldn't make any sense for anyone to think about running PostgreSQL 10 on them. +1 for dropping support. -- Thomas Munro http://www.enterprisedb.com -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
