[postgis-users] Are there any Ubuntu PPAs that serve PostGIS 2.0 beta releases?

You are right, but there notices in 

GEOS geometry library, version 3.2.2 or greater, but GEOS 3.3.2+ is 
recommended. Without GEOS 3.3, you will be missing some major 
enhancements with handling of topological exceptions and improvements to 
geometry validation and making geometries valid such as ST_ValidDetail 
and ST_MakeValid. GEOS 3.3.2+ is also required for topology support. 
GEOS is available for download fromhttp://trac.osgeo.org/geos/and 3.3+ 
is backward-compatible with older versions so fairly safe to upgrade.

GDAL, version 1.6 or higher (1.9 or higher is preferable since some 
things will not work well with lower versions). This is needed for 
raster support and will be required in final release of PostGIS 

I am no expert, but I am not sure it's good idea to deliver builds of 
postgis in a sub-optimal config.
