If you find PyGreSQL badly supported, you can use pyPgSQL or psycopg, which were 
founded for this reason, among others. PyGreSQL's state was the reason I hopped on 
board of the pyPgSQL development team two years ago.

I suppose the GBorg project should be the definite place of the latest sources now.

Also, PyGreSQL and PoPy (yet another Python adapter for PostgreSQL which seemed 
pretty badly supported to me) announced a merge of their projects a few months ago 
on DB-SIG (the Python database list). My personal opinion is that there's nothing 
worth keeping from the PyGreSQL codebase, and if you want a supported PostgreSQL 
adapter, you should really switch to pyPgSQL or psycopg.
