TLDR Sergio asked if triggering a backup during the upgrade process was necessary, and Kishore Nallan confirmed it's mainly for guarding against failures and, in rare cases, changes in the raft wire format.

Hi folks, I have a quick question regarding the upgrade process for a self hosted cluster.
I am reading the steps documented here, and the first steps is asking to trigger a backup. Is this intended in case the upgrade flow fails and needs data recovery or actually it is relevant for the upgrade?

And in some rare cases if there is a change in the raft wire format this also helps.

We haven't had that in the last couple of releases
