That was added as a result of the thread starting at
http://fts.postgresql.org/db/mw/msg.html?mid=115811

There are two things I think we need: one is a discussion of each of
these topics (which AFAIR are presently discussed nowhere); the other
is a short "checklist of maintenance concerns" that links to longer
discussions of each relevant topic.  For example, there's already a
discussion of backup methods, but it'd be good if that were listed in a
checklist of things for the budding admin to think about.

Or you could reorganize the Admin Guide so that backup and these other
things are sections in a Maintenance chapter.  Not sure if that'd be
better.
