It is wholly unclear what this commitfest entry is all about; in the
thread there's a mixture about a new uuid_version(), some new v4 stuff
migrating from pgcrypto (which apparently was done), plus some kind of
mechanism to allow upgrading extension names; all this stemming from
feedback from the patch submitted in April. But there hasn't been a new
patch in a long time, and there won't be a new patch version during the
current commitfest. Therefore, I'm closing this entry as Returned with
Feedback. The author(s) can create a new entry in a future commitfest
once they have a new patch.

I do suggest to keep such a patch restricted in scope.
