Thanks for the patch! + <literal>backup</>: The WAL sender is sending a backup. Seems it's better to use "This WAL sender" rather than "The WAL sender" like the descriptions of other fields. There are two descriptions of "streaming" value. You need to remove either of them. + <literal>streaming</>: The WAL sender is catching up with the + primary.
