Strk I haven't tested your pull request. I think you might have changed it since last we spoke.
So did you embed the rtpostgis_upgrade script as part of
Postgis upgrade scripts?
If you did that sounds like a lot of work to still embed upgrade raster steps just so you can drop it from the extension?
So now we need two sets of scripts don't we -- people coming from 2.0.0 --- 2.4... and another for people upgrading from 2.5 ---?
And if I don't want raster anymore do I have to do this
ALTER EXTENSION postgis UPDATE;
CREATE EXTENSION postgis_raster FROM unpackaged;
DROP EXTENSION postgis_raster;
Where as in option (2) you just do this:
ALTER EXTENSION postgis UPDATE "2.5.0noraster";
And you are done.
