Is this definite? I think it may be wise to open some more discussion about
this as there are several issues to consider; for example if we had wanted
to be included with pginstaller/postgresql releases then I would assume that
we would have become part of the official contrib/ tree a long time before
now. At the moment we have the freedom to release as we need to, however
with pginstaller then in effect we are giving up this ability (not to
mention that I don't think they would wait for our release of 1.0 before
producing the final installer for 8.0). One more thing is that I'm not sure
exactly how we stand with licensing, since as someone mentioned on the list
before, PostgreSQL and PostGIS are made available under different
