I’m really excited about the managed postgres offering, especially with PostGIS enabled by default.

Unfortunately, it was not compiled with support for protocol buffers (protobuf). I found out during runtime when I got this error message:
django.db.utils.InternalError: Missing libprotobuf-c.

This makes functions like ST_AsMVT() unavailable. They’re at the core of my product (which is a map-based product using dynamic vector tiles).

Are there short-term plans for inclusion of this library? If not, I’m going to have to stick to Droplets instead of Apps.
