ashb commented on issue #3796: [AIRFLOW-2824] - Add config to disable default conn creation
   Since I didn't say so I think the goal of this ticket is 💯.
   Ah the RBAC code there is an interesting one. Apart from that, everything in `initdb` is
optional - airflow will operate fine with only ever running `upgradedb`. We have been running
in prod since 1.8.2 only having done `upgradedb` and nothing has broken or missing (other
than no sample charts or connections)
   I have no idea where KnowEvent(Type) is actually used - there are very few references to
it in the rest of the code base that I could see other the creation there, and a view. Nothing
ever seems to use it for anything else.... Maybe a candidate for dropping, though worth checking
with @mistercrunch or someone else (still?) at AirBnB.
   Pre-loading of the DAG table didn't used to be required as starting the scheduler would
do this job too, but on quick testing I'm not sure that's the case anymore.
   Hmm, the RBAC change should possibly be converted to be an actual Alembic migration, or
at the very least done via upgradedb not just initdb!
   I have somewhat hijacked this issue though. Oops.
   Having written al that I'm not sure the way forward either.
   RBAC and KET should probably be in upgradedb. It might be worth merging them in to a single
command behind a flag `airflow initdb --with-examples` which is more obvious/delibarate than
having to know that `upgradedb` exists when all the tutorials just talk about initdb. THoughts?
