Yeah, thats one of the reasons I am skeptical about having official policies 
on this type of thing.  If Sun decided they wanted to maintain 7.2 and were 
going to dedicate developers and testing for it, would we really turn that 
away?  OK, I don't really want to have this discussion again, but as of now I 
think we are all agreed that 7.2 is unsupported.

We've been kicking it around but haven't moved much on this...

Marc, can you move the 7.2 branches in the FTP under the OLD directory?
http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/source/

We need to do the same with 7.2 documentation, moving them into the Manual 
Archive http://www.postgresql.org/docs/manuals/archive.html.  We can also 
change the caption on the main documentation page to note these are manuals 
for the current supported versions.
