Distribution support v23

TPA detects and adapts to the distribution running on each target instance. This page lists platforms which are actively supported and 'legacy distribution' which have previously been supported. Deploying to a legacy platform is likely to work as long as you have access to the necessary packages, but this is not considered a supported use of TPA and is not suitable for production use.

Fully supported platforms are supported both as host systems for running TPA and target systems on which TPA deploys the Postgres cluster.
