We would like to merge our patches into the last release of the 
pgaccess (apperently this is now in the postgres tree), and make this 
for the future patches too.
So we set up, with it's own cvs, mailing lists and 
homepage. When Iavor searched for the last release almost a war started.

We would like to syncronise the postgres tree, and to give people a 
place where they can find the software, tha latest release, can drop 
wishes, and browse the to-do list easier. Is there any to-do list in 
the postgres package regarding the pgaccess?
