And lastly, if we are not going to include these in core, I repeat what I said before: we need to undertake some *serious* evangelising to major packagers to get them to build more than just the core among their standard packages.

Just because an addon is in core (or not) doesn't mean that the packager responsible for building a package for 'the rdbms' is going to bother going into the contrib directory, or any other, to build 'extra stuff' ...

In fact, with all of the ppl that lurk on these lists, aren't there enough here that could learn to package for their respective OSs and submit those for inclusion? Or, at least, mentor the various projects maintainers into how to build a package?
