Hi, Tom. I'll see if I can do that, but be forewarned that I will not be
able to actually run the "current" Postgres sources in order to actually
test it. I am working on a database application, not on Postgres, and I
have to maintain a stable Postgres on my development machine. The reason
I'm working on the 6.4 RPM for Red Hat 5.2 is for deployment purposes, not
for testing purposes, though of course I'll test it before deploying it.
(I want the latest stable version possible for deployment, because once
deployed, it will be out there for a LONG time).

BTW, congrats to everybody on an excellent job. I examined several
databases, including some commercial ones, and for everything but speed
PostgreSQL measured up nicely. And speed wasn't THAT bad, certainly quite
acceptable for my purposes (and definitely a lot faster than it used to
be!).
