Some random thoughts (with some overlapping):

To promote PostgreSQL.

To provide a public face to the Postgres project. 

To interact with the press and general public regarding Postgres.

To monitor the press, the web, etc. for any mention of Postgres.

Correcting errors and misconceptions when found.

Soliciting articles and news about Postgres.

To run the advocacy website, a friendly place where non-developers 
can learn about Postgres.

To [provide a buffer | act as a liason ] between the public 
and the developers.

To analyze the shortcomings of the Postgres project and find ways to 
fix them. All types of shortcomings: technical, marketing, perception, 
incorrect myths, etc.
