I think you are missing the point Stefan is trying to make. We're all
sure EDB will fix the problem. But it outlines the fact that the
ability for our community to be able to access the official community
binaries relies solely on infrastructure the community does not
control - in this caes it was the edb domain, it could also be the
webservers or whatever.
For example, the core RPMs are available both at the pgsqlrpms project
*and* through the main mirroring network. We recommend people use the
YUM repository on pgsqlrpms.org, but they are still available through
the main web/ftp system (without the nice automated features and
instructions, but the core packages are there) if it goes down.
