Looks like he hasn't been squatting all that long:
    Domain Name: POSTGRES.NET

       Created on..............: Wed, Aug 07, 2002
       Expires on..............: Sat, Aug 07, 2004
       Record last updated on..: Fri, Oct 31, 2003

Also note the expiration date. Maybe we can convince him to let us have 
the domain. Is it worth asking?

Hmmm, perhaps you're right. Too bad, I was going to vote for 
postgresql.net myself. If we could get control of postgres.net that 
option would definitely get my vote.

I agree with the others who have said pgfoundry.org is not clearly 
enough linked.
