But did Postgresql 9 come out too late?

PostgreSQL had a 2nd beta release on June 4th, which could have gone
into Rawhide, and hence allowed PostgreSQL 9 to be in Fedora 14
(assuming that the packager had time to do it, and confidence that the
PostgreSQL final release would have been in time).

After all Gnome 2.32 isn't released until later this month, and the
beta releases have been included in Fedora 14 up to now.
