RedHat RPMs for PostgreSQL 7.0, release 3 are available immediately on
ftp.postgresql.org in /pub/binary/v7.0/redhat-RPM

They have also been uploaded to incoming.redhat.com for inclusion on
contrib.redhat.com.  They will also soon be available on www.ramifordistat.net.

There is one additional RPM for the plperl procedural language.  I was highly
tempted to fold plperl into the perl subpackage until I took a long hard look
at pl/perl and its dependency upon the shared libperl.so -- which those just
needing client-side perl access don't need.  Saves 624K on disk to split them
up -- not to mention that pl/perl is in a sortof experimental stage anyway, as
it is not built by default in the PostgreSQL 7.0 release distribution tarball. 
Of course, Karl DeBisschop, who got plperl to build, had already done it that
way, as well.... :-)  However, in the future I may decide to fold pl/perl into
the -perl subpackage...

NOTE: If you are still running 6.5.3, or 7.0 earlier than RC5, you will need to
do a full dump/initdb/restore.  Further, if you are running 6.5.x or eariler,
you need to take a thorough look at the README.rpm distributed in
/usr/doc/postgresql-7.0 BEFORE installing -- available for direct reading at
ftp://ftp.postgresql.org/pub/binary/v7.0/redhat-RPM/README -- there have been
several changes since 6.5.3.

From the changelog:
* Thu May 25 2000 Lamar Owen <lamar(dot)owen(at)wgcr(dot)org>

- Incorporated some of Karl's changes (see below)
-- PL/Perl should now work.
- Fixed missing /usr/bin/pg_passwd.

* Mon May 22 2000 Karl DeBisschop <kdebisschop(at)infoplease(dot)com>
- 7.0-2.1
- make plperl module (works for linux i386, your guess for other platforms)
- use "make COPT=" because postgreSQL configusre script ignores CFLAGS

* Sat May 20 2000 Lamar Owen <lamar(dot)owen(at)wgcr(dot)org>
- 7.0-2

* Tue May 16 2000 Trond Eivind Glomsrd <teg(at)redhat(dot)com>
- changed buildroot, removed packager, vendor, distribution
-- [Left all but buildroot as-is for PostgreSQL.org RPMS. LRO]
- don't strip in package [strip in PostgreSQL.org RPMS]
- fix perl weirdnesses (man page in bad location, remove 
  perllocal.pod from file list)

Summary     : PostgreSQL client programs and libraries.
Description :
PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system
(DBMS) that supports almost all SQL constructs (including
transactions, subselects and user-defined types and functions). The
postgresql package includes the client programs and libraries that
you'll need to access a PostgreSQL DBMS server.  These PostgreSQL
client programs are programs that directly manipulate the internal
structure of PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server. These client
programs can be located on the same machine with the PostgreSQL
server, or may be on a remote machine which accesses a PostgreSQL
server over a network connection. This package contains the client
libraries for C and C++, as well as command-line utilities for
managing PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server.

If you want to manipulate a PostgreSQL database on a remote PostgreSQL
server, you need this package. You also need to install this package
if you're installing the postgresql-server package.
