I agree that the site does need better links to software and related
projects. I've just had a look at the site to remind myself, and it is very
difficult to find things (as I recall I previously used to look at the
listing of the additional software on the distribution CD if I wanted to
know what else was out there).
Perhaps 3 sections:
Interfaces/APIs (ODBC, JDBC etc)
Tools (pgAdmin, pgBash etc.)
The third section is one I would be interested in. My staff and I are
writing software for PostgreSQL that maybe of use to others, and I'm sure
others must be doing the same (either commercial or open source - in fact if
any has any financial ledgers...). I appreciate that the User Gallery is
(intended as) a listing of what PostgreSQL is being used for/with, but
perhaps a more moderated list of what people can actually download or buy
would attract more potential users.
