I still cannot understand why we spend our energy on such a thing.

I strongly object. I don't want to see Postgres in any of our
documentation.

As the lead RPM packager, I will *never* ever rename PostgreSQL to
Postgres in any of my packages, documentation, etc. unless we change our
official name someday (which I hope it won't happen any time)

From my point of view, I cannot spend time to rename the packages from
postgresql to postgres (I cannot think about the upgrade problems...)
