We're always looking to improve that list, so we encourage anyone that
is running a platform not listed to please report on any success or
failures with Release Candidate 4.
I notice that Ubuntu is not yet on this list. I can confirm that
PostgreSQL 7.4.5 is supported under Ubuntu 4.10 (warty) on all platforms
(x86, amd64 and ppc) and that PostgreSQL 7.4.6 is supported under Ubuntu
5.4 (hoary) on all platforms. We are now in version freeze for hoary, so
that version is fixed and the 8 series won't be officially supported
until the following release (October 2005), although installing the
Debian packages should work just fine.

    You seem to be under a misconception about the purpose of that list.
    It has nothing to do with what Postgres releases are packaged by
    various distributions. Entries on the list mean that someone has
    verified that the *source code* distribution builds per instructions
    and passes regression tests on that platform.

    If you are trying to say that you personally have verified that for
    Ubuntu, you didn't phrase it clearly.
