There was previously a discussion about setting up an
apt.postgresql.org(when we created this list as a first step) - has
this been completely
replaced by the effort to do pgapt.debian.net?

How many people can actually build/push packages there, and what's the
update policy?

I'd really like to get this information up on www.postgresql.org under
downloads to make it easier for people who don't already know where to go,
but it needs to be "stabilized" before we can do that. And we need to be
able to specify some level of support commitments. (Which means it would be
very useful if >1 person can actually do it).

We really need something that works the same way the pg community yum
repository does for RPMs (I don't care if it's under postgresql.org or
debian.net as long as it *works* that way). I've already had several
customers drop debian permanently due to the whole "9.0 will be removed
from backports" issue, and I'd rather not have more of that happening :S
Particularly since I know we have plenty of people in the pg/debian
communities who know how to fix this problem...
