I think Patrice is focusing alot of his attentions right now on the
various FAQs and getting them organized, so I'll leave this one in his
hands to answer...Patrice?

	Damn, Unix ppl are soooo much easier to co-ordinate :)


	Patrice, I think (please correct me if I'm wrong), has taken over
co-ordination of the FAQs associated with the project, so I will leave it
in his hands to let you know what he requires for the ODBC FAQ...

	Okay, the impression I've been getting from the postings that
Bryonn has been posting was that the newest version is available at your
site, and, well, if we want to update the distribution, go out and grab a
copy and update it...he's never said that outright, its just the way that
its come across, especially since I've yet to see a patch across against
the distribution...

	Sorry about the mis-impression...

	Now, are you adverse to merging the ODBC website as part of the
whole PostgreSQL web site, so that all information is centralized and
follows the same overall look/feel to it?
