There are a couple of places that the procedure for making a major point
release are kept, one is in the source, the other is either in one of
the guides or somewhere behind the advocacy site. If no one else can
find them I can dig up links when we need them. That said core has never
felt a need to make widespread public announcements outside of the
postgresql community for minor point releases, so unless that policy has
changed I believe the only things that will need to be done are a
posting to -hackers, -announce, and -general, a posting on www, and a
mention in the weekly news. Anyone who wishes to translate the posting
and post to a regional mailing list is free to do so.
