We have a PostGIS 0.9 on FreeBSD with MapServer 411 running as WMS and
WFS on the same data.
Both Capabilities, getMap, getFeatureInfo, DescribeFeature, getFeature
are fine. We can provide a MAP file including data sql dump and shape.

Works fine for post codes (we just shreddered the placenames tbale in
the database so the city search wont work). What do you want to know
about it?

We'll get a PostGIS v1 up and running asap - I missed that its out
already (are you reading this Ben?).

What am I doing the whole time? Must be lolling around in bed while the
rest of the world is working hard...

I always thought it was me who is too slow - did it ever cross anybodys
mind that we/you/MapServer dev could be 2fast4anybody?
