Thanks Sergio, that would be great. I suggest that this should be 
referenced in the QuickStart documentation that I'll be asking for.

We have had issues with our postgis loader script.  I think Brian has 
been looking into this.

We are looking to make use of a common dataset which is used by most 
So far, we have installed a set of shapefiles and raster data from the 
NaturalEarth dataset (as per the install_gisdata.sh script).
It sounds like we also need to load this data into postgis as well.

We install sun jre and jdk 1.6, and strongly encourage all other 
projects to make use of it. As you mention, it saves a lot of space.
