Upcoming Maintenance Windows for Patroni Deployment

We are writing this post to let our community know we are planning on performing the work necessary to deploy Patroni as the Postgres Failover Manager on over two weekends: a dry-run to test our migration plan and tools on Saturday, Dec 8, 2018, and the actual deployment on Saturday, December 15, 2018.

During the maintenance windows, the following services will be unavailable:
