Hmm. I had actually replied earlier, but I cannot find any traces of
this in my mail logs. Apparently mutt ate the mail while still putting
a copy in the local folder.

I am talking with the backports.debian.org people to see if that would
be a good place to put the whole project (or at least the part for
8.4/9.0/9.1). There's a wiki page about it:

http://wiki.debian.org/pkg-postgresql/BackportsIntegration

The "9.0" part is currently a problem, because there's only 8.4 and
9.1 left in testing/unstable.

backports.d.o would have the big advantage that there's buildds that
would pick up building packages. There is also some plan to implement
PPAs officially on ftp-master.debian.org, but that will take at least
months to get started.

That said, I have only limited spare time, and I'd definitely need.

Currently only me, but so far no one else has asked for access. (I
didn't ask very hard, though.)

Nod. (Currently in a meeting, hopefully a longer answer later.)
