One thing that has been talked to death many times, but nobody ever seems 
to come up with a solution to, is pgFoundry, and how badly it is 
advertised / promoted ... so software packages over there seem relegated 
to a sort of 'no mans land' ...

I was just thinking of it, and kinda surprised nobody else has ... why not 
add a section to's main page for it?  We have 
two sections now: Latest News and Upcoming Events ... why not add a third 
one under that includes Latest News from pgFoundry?  that way, when a 
release happens, or project is added, its very prominently displayed on 
our main page?
