poolsize environment attribute breaks upgrades #506

The addition of the poolsize attribute to environment spec broke upgrades. Here's why:

  1. New environment spec has a poolsize attribute
  2. But old environments don't have poolsize defined
  3. Reading old environments into the new env spec yields poolsize equal to zero
  4. Poolsize==0 causes functions using poolmgr to fail

There's a lot of options on how to fix this:

  • Option 1: Use env versioning -- create a new environment version (3) and only read poolsize when version>=3.
  • Option 2: Ignore poolsize==0 when functions exist that use poolmgr
  • Option 3: Dispatch functions to newdeploy executor backend when poolsize==0.

Option 1 seems cleanest to think about.

Do we consider using pointer(*int) for Poolsize? Another option is use string to distinguish 0 and nil here. That means if a env is in old schema than it will be "" instead of zero and for new schema it will be "0".
Be honest, it not so useful to add new env version with only one config. It makes users confused what are the differences between 1, 2 and 3 env version.

Wouldn't changing int to int* also be a compatibility-breaking change?

yes, so we may need to add another field for this purpose.
