This is awesome. Always have interests to use pgAgent; however, the
official documentation about installing is obscure and stop me from getting
into it... I honestly cannot get any clue about steps I should do from this link.

Maybe installing pgagent is easy to a lot of people. There are still a lot
of people asking questions of pgagent installation in Stackoverflow.

Can any one contribute a step by step tutorial? I will truly appreciate it.
