TurnKey appliances are Ubuntu under the hood. We don't package postgres
ourselves. BTW, the appliances are configured to auto-install security
patches from the Ubuntu security repository daily.

I think there is a difference between a software package and a software
appliance. Users of distro X don't necessarily need to be given a link
to pgsql because their package manager takes care of that for them.
