Hi everyone,

I'm just putting the final touches to the Win32 PostGIS installer, and
wanted to check with everyone that "template_postgis" should be the name
of the PostGIS template database (as opposed to just "template_gis")?
I'd like to get this right before I do the next release... :)

Kind regards,
