Hmm, a Comprehensive PostgreSQL Archive Network? ;)

I mean, something like CPAN, CTAN or CRAN? :)

I mean, the -contrib is great, but pushing other things there is a bit
tricky (to say the least) from the maintenance point of view.  (Every
bugfix, a new release of -contrib, etc, etc...).

Then again PGfoundry is great to keep development centered, but
finding and building a new package is not really a one-liner, and
if you're unlucky you might get alpha-quality code installed. :)

I think a CPgAN-like solution would be the best.  A uniform method
of getting approved Pg extensions.  It would simplify installing the
extensions, and would encourage distributions to package such
extensions.  Somebody suggested apt-get install postgresql-contrib.
Imagine:
apt-get install postgresql-datatype-fqdn
apt-get install postgresql-gist-ltree
...and so on.
