 I was surprised to see that MacPorts was automatically offering to upgrade
 from MongoDB v5 to v6 without any warnings. After the upgrade was
 completed, all databases were wiped. I can't find them anywhere. Is this a
 known issue?

 Normally, MongoDB requires a specific "compatibility" update to existing
 databases when upgrading to new minor or major versions. This is the first
 time (in 8 years) that I've seen MacPorts do the upgrade without any
 warning. I have seen databases disappear in the past, but it seemed to be
 anamoly, as they magically reappeared after a reboot. This time, no such

 Did I miss a notice during the upgrade?
