UNSOLVED Tiny Tiny RSS - might drop support for MySQL

The author of Tiny Tiny RSS considers to drop MySQL / MariaDB support (https://discourse.tt-rss.org/t/feed-browser-do-you-use-it/2093/10) after weird errrors in the last update (in any event, a lot of commits again, so please update the cloudron package...).
I love his statement here :
mysql is irredeemable shit garbage
whoever developed this pile of fuck should rot in hell for crimes against principles of ACID
god i wish i could fucking roll back support for mysql from tt-rss
May I suggest - once again - to switch Tiny Tiny RSS to PostgreSQL, as recommended by the author, anyway? We're using it e.g. for Nextcloud, anyway.
Since converting MySQL to PostgreSQL does not seem doable Maybe you could offer a "second" TT-RSS version with PostgreSQL for existing TT-RSS users and let people migrate...
I think he followed up with https://discourse.tt-rss.org/t/failed-updating-to-version-136/2096/24 saying it's unlikely.
Maintaining two version of ttrss is probably going to a bit too much work for us atm especially because the mysql version works just fine (I use it everyday myself).
I think in the long run, if they do decide to move away, we will do an OPML based transition (hopefully Cloudron can do this transparently as well).
We will update the app We want to move fast but not way too fast, for example, rolling back the schema changes in the post you linked for example would be a lot of work with little gain if we had moved too fast.
