Did I miss something, or was there no post made to -announce 
and/or -general about this? Since even people on the -www list 
seemed to have been caught by surprise by the move, I think we should at 
least make a public announcement. Perhaps a news item or other mention 
on the main postgresql.org page? Something on the main pgfoundry.org page?

Some sort of redirect or friendlier message is needed as well. For 
example, the second link when Googling for "Postgres Slony" is:

http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/slony1

...which now gives a very unfriendly 404 message from pgfoundry. Granted, 
the first Google hit is the authoritative one, but this is probably 
just the tip of the dead link iceberg. Google on 'pljava', 'dbdpg', 
or 'pgsphere' for some even scarier examples.

I'll reiterate my offer to write a web-log scraping script for the main site 
and extend it to pgfoundry, to at least start triaging some of the worst 
effects of the move if nobody has other ideas.
