[openstack-dev] [tc] revised Postgresql deprecation patch for governance

We had a forum session in Boston on Postgresql and out of that agreed to
the following steps forward:

1. explicitly warn in operator facing documentation that Postgresql is
less supported than MySQL. This was deemed better than just removing
documentation, because when people see Postgresql files in tree they'll
make assumptions (at least one set of operators did).

2. Suse is in process of investigating migration from PG to Gallera for
future versions of their OpenStack product. They'll make their findings
and tooling open to help determine how burdensome this kind of
transition would be for folks.

After those findings, we can come back with any next steps (or just
leave it as good enough there).

The TC governance patch is updated here -

discussion questions feel free to respond to this thread.
