PVE 6 to 7 Update OpenVSwitch

I just updated PVE from 6 to 7 with an OpenVSwitch configuration.
With ifupdown it seems like my /etc/network/interfaces will be ignored.

Installing ifupdown2 solved the problem - though you have to setup a temporary internet connection to download the package.

It's odd that ifupdown2 isn't in the pve7 meta package or a warning in the pre update script pve6to7 --full

PVE 6 was a manual install from Debian 10.
Maybe this can be added to the "known issues" in the wiki.
