I'm for bumbing. Because if we use same number it also means that new

number must be increased. Standard practice how ELF loader works is
Each library could have tree numbers libxxx-X.Y.Z. Loader/Linker ignores Z
number. It means any binaries can be linked e.g. with X.Y.Z+1 or X.Y.Z-1.
This is used for bugfixing. Middle number Y means that binaries which
requires Y can also use Y+1 (and linker takes it), but not Y-1. It is used
for adding new thing into interface - backward compatible. Change in major
number X means it is not backward compatible libraries.
Right, so bump the minor and leave the major (and the overall 'soname')
In PostgreSQL perspective, we use only major number. We can increase main
number (X) or best way is add Y and keep major number same. But I don't
know if it is possible in current infrastructure and if it will work
I'm confused by this. I see both in Makefile.shlib and on my system
that we have a minor version so I don't entirely follow when you say "we
use only major number".
I'm Sorry for confusion, I overlooked it. You have right. Unfortunately
struct Port has been modified and by my opinion it means we must bump
major version. See
