Deprecating postgreSQL is not a done deal, it's up for review at
[1] and [2]. And at this point it is more about documenting reality
that postgreSQL is not a focus of upstream development.

Deprecation is likely to happen, however, if there isn't an increase
in the number people willing to:

* actively share pg knowledge in the OpenStack community
* help with ensuring there is gate testing and responsiveness to
* address some of the mysql-oriented issue listed in [1]

I'd rather not see it happen, especially if it allows an easy step
to using cockroachdb. So I'd encourage you (and anyone else) to
participate in those reviews, especially if they are able to make
some commitments about future involvement.
