we have a primary db at a later patching level than a standby db and are syncronizing via data guard with the standby eventually becoming primary... wondering if we should take time to patch secondary to be same patch level as primary or we can wait 2-3 weeks and then patch after we go live.  We have already set go live and dont want to change but we are trying to determine technical risk if we go live with patch level on source later than standby.
