Just curious, but why does it have to be *.postgresql.org to be considered 
official?  Isn't official what we make it ... ?  It should be prominently 
linked *from* the main web site, but shouldn't *have* to be a subdomain of 
... pgFoundry should have, I think, a more prominent link in the Weekly 
News stuff ... we could also add the various web sites, individually, and 
with short blurbs, to the mailing list tips ...

The thing is, everyone spends their time putting pgFoundry down as being 
'second class' ... of course everyone else is going to consider it such 
also ... it isn't second class, nor was it ever meant to be ... if ppl 
promoted, pushed and advertised it more, it would be as 'second class' as 
common to go to as CPAN is for Perl ...
