Advocating PostgreSQL to decision makers can be somewhat hard. I know, 
since I've been in that situation quite recently. The www.postgresql.org 
site is not at all what you'd expect a "front page" to be. You find some 
news and events on the first page but no real presentation of PostgreSQL 
as such. The advocacy.postgresql.org is much better in that respect. So 
why not make the best of two worlds?

Put the content (revised) from the advocacy site on first page of the 
www site. Use the current "News" of the www site instead of the sadly 
outdated news on the advocacy site, etc. Direct all marketing efforts to 
the new www site.

Seems to me that using two sites (www and advocacy) just creates more 
work and benefits no one. In fact, it may actually be bad for PostgreSQL 
since the sites currently do a less then perfect job of promoting it.

An effort to concentre and structure the somewhat widespread information 
that's out there is propably something that will pay off greatly in the 
future.
