I won't object in general (since I'm not maintaining pgfoundry ;) ), but
the only positive thing about PGFoundry from my perspective (as a user
and packager) is that it is a "PostgreSQL community hosted website",
where people can find some 3rd party software, like pgpool, skytools,
and other stuff. It is no different than hosting yum repo and pgxn in
the community infrastructure, which is fine.

When we shut it down, all projects will all go somewhere else, and that
somewhere else might sound reliable to the people outside the community.
That is the only concern of me. Getting rid of CVS is fine, and they can
move their projects to, which would be excellent.
Still, is there a simple way that PostgreSQL infrastructure team can
provide hosting are for tarballs for ex-pgfoundry projects? 

(I'm sure Tatsuo will be unhappy with shutting pgfoundry, so you might
want to talk to him today about this ;) )

(/me will also need to figure out where the projects will go, and update
all related spec files, and that is another story)
