Yeah, I am thinking of doing something like for the sourceforge site. 
For phppgadmin we have an unstable package that we put beta releases in,
for postgresql we could create an unstable package and then add the
various beta's and RC's until the actual release. Mark, I've already
talked with Justin about helping out with the sourceforge site, I'm
familiar with freshmeats system too if you want to offload updating that
I think I can pick it up since it would be pretty similar tasks.
