+1 - very good analysis.
A question. Does having all the Contrib packages installed in the
template databases by the installer contribute meaningfully to the value?
Would having a bare-bones installer, that installed the contrib packages
(but did not insert them into template1) be a benefit?
Check out the installers for xTuple, for versions 3.2.1 and prior. If I
heard correctly, Selena created the one for Mac and I created the one for
Windows. As part of the process, these installers install PG, PGAdminII,
and create a Windows Service Account and Windows Service.
Aside from testing, it would take 1-3 hours to create a new Windows PG
installer with the scripts I have, and I'm perfectly happy to give those
scripts to anyone who's interested. I don't know if I can commit the time
to make the installers myself.
