> No, in the datums. Yeah, I don't see any way that we could fob off float timestamps to an extension that would be completely transparent at the pg_upgrade level. And even a partial solution would be an enormous amount of fundamentally dead-end work. There has never been any project policy that promises everybody will be able to pg_upgrade until the end of time. I think it's not unreasonable for us to say that anyone still using float timestamps has to go through a dump and reload to get to v10. The original discussion about getting rid of them was ten years ago come May; that seems long enough. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
