not sure that page is acurate and not sure how relevant X11 support is for postgresql :) Anyway they do currently have packages (9.2 in -stable and 9.3 in -current) available and I think we should consider packagers here as well - I personally don't have any particular need for alpha but it is clearly not as dead as some of the others we are discussing. > Note also that we already don't support all openbsd platforms. sure - but does that also mean we should desupport without at least considering it?
