+1. I know how hard you guys are working hard on QA process.

Personally, as a community guy (not an EDB employee), I'm pretty much
happy that a company is spending funds on installers. As Josh stated,
they increased visibility of PostgreSQL a lot. Given that registration
is not a must, I'm ok with giving link to the current website instead of
removing it without a real valid reason.

Oh, and of course, if community can provide installers that have *at
least* the same quality, I'll vote for removing links to EDB page -- but
as you wrote, people seem to underestimate the manpower to build binary
packages, so I actually don't expect someone to step up the plate and
build pure community packages.
