PostgreSQL is a sophisticated Object-Relational DBMS, supporting
almost all SQL constructs, including subselects, transactions, and
user-defined types and functions. It is the most advanced open-source
database available anywhere. Commercial Support is also available.
The original Postgres code was the effort of many graduate students,
undergraduate students, and staff programmers working under the direction of
Professor Michael Stonebraker at the University of California, Berkeley. In
1995, Andrew Yu and Jolly Chen took on the task of converting the DBMS query
language to SQL and created a new database system which came to known as
Postgres95. Many others contributed to the porting, testing, debugging and
enhancement of the Postgres95 code. As the code improved, and 1995 faded into
memory, PostgreSQL was born.
PostgreSQL development is presently being performed by a team of Internet
developers who are now responsible for all current and future development. The
development team coordinator is Marc G. Fournier (scrappy@PostgreSQL.ORG).
Support is available from the PostgreSQL developer/user community through the
support mailing list (questions@PostgreSQL.ORG).
PostgreSQL is free and the complete source is available.

Updates of the PostgreSQL ports
Updates for all maintained versions of PostgreSQL are available today:
8.3.3, 8.2.9, 8.1.13, 8.0.17 and 7.4.21. These releases fix more than
two dozen minor issues reported and patched over the last few months.
All PostgreSQL users should plan to update at their earliest
convenience. People in affected time zones, in particular, should
upgrade as soon as possible.
Also, fix umask error in periodic script .

Bump portrevision due to upgrade of devel/gettext.
The affected ports are the ones with gettext as a run-dependency
according to ports/INDEX-7 (5007 of them) and the ones with USE_GETTEXT
in Makefile (29 of them).

Update to 8.2.7
Remove HIER patch option, since it is not available anymore. The site
is down and original author responses that he does not maintain it
Remove option to build and link with thread safety, and always build
thread safe instead. Decided after a discussion with postgresql
hackers, and tested for a while in postgresql83. This helps when
for example linking with openldap, or for using certain programming
languages as postgresql functions.
