Yup.

Yup.

Yup.

Dunno, but it's very old and sup.postgresql.org mentioned in the readme
doesn't exist in DNS any more.

Currently there is no appropriate directory under binary as there are
only released versions there. I added that symlink in anticipation of
lots of 'where's the pginstaller?' questions - I agree it should
eventually be in binaries, but put it there for now to avoid any
unnecessary faqs from ppl too lazy to think about it.

Hmm, not pretty is is? What about something like

8.0.0/
SRPMS/
fc1/
fc2/
redhat9/
slackware9/
slackware10/
suse9/
win32/
win64/

With each directory created as required of course.

The patches directory seems a little redundant to me as well.

README.mirrors is incredibly out of date.

Regards, Dave.
