Well, I'm been away from the computer all weekend, and when I returned I didn't have an account on any of the postgresql.org servers.

Seems people took my mentioning of withdrawing as being a "don't want to be associated with", which isn't the case.  It's just that even the smallest tasks to 
do with PostgreSQL are feeling like chores, and there are other things I want to concentrate on.

i.e. Open Source in governments (a growing thing), perhaps looking at creating some more online training stuff, etc.  For the moment though, I just want to take 
a break more than anything.

Good thing to suspect.  We need some way of making it really multi-user, but as much as that's my recommendation, I don't have the motivation to do the work.

Now before *anyone* says what'll be done with the Techdocs site next, please lets think about what the PostgreSQL Community will benefit from most as it's next 
stage of growth.  The best _logical_ place for it is on hub.org servers with everything else, but frankly... it generates extra workload for the guys running 
those servers so I'd be more interesed in seeing it elsewhere.  Still named "techdocs.postgresql.org" if possible (Marc?) but lets take the opportunity to 
reduce potential workload on Chris/Marc/hub.org/etc and explore other possibilities.

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift
