The rename append in rhdb 2.0 and not in taroon (sorry).

like RedHat does with gnome, XFree86, ...

The documentation is mostly the same with the one which come with
postgresql (excellent).

This is only for the iso image distribution and not part of
(rh-)postgresql package.

This tools are in rhdb package. No problem here.

If i check the release note of rhdb 2.1 ( http://ftp.rhnet.is/pub/redhat/rhdb/2.1/en/iso/i386/RELEASE-NOTES ) :

the rh-postgresql package is mostly from the postgresql project. And i
really appreciate the redhat participation to postgresql (BSD).

I also want to know if "PostgreSQL - Red Hat Edition" will be available
to rhlp. rhdb 2.1 is currently available to rhl 8.0 .

As I understand, the difference between RHE and RHLP is in the support
and RHLP is more sync with the upstream (no extended Attributes and no
samba 3 (hum, sound strange) for example).

If rhdb is a project and RHLP don't follow its upstream, we are now
faced with a new question :
What else ?

RedHat should give more details. I don't want to see rh-httpd, rh-gnome,
rh-samba, ... only available in RHE.

Everyone here spend some time building a better RedHat system. RedHat
get cash from RHE and its support. It was simple. Now I am a little
confused.

PS: sorry for my poor English.
