some comments:


1. I changed all the urls to https because that is what we have for a
while now...

2. the wiki page still has this:

"QUOTE ABOUT SCALING OUT ON POSTGRES HERE "

is this going to be filled?

3. "Phrase search means that PostgreSQL continues to be an alternative
to dedicated text search technologies for web search and data mining"
sound rather boring and not very nice to me - it basically reads as
"yeah we can kinda do what others can do better"


4. is it Btree or B-tree (we seem to use the later in the docs - and
yeah I do see it is a quote)?

5. 32X -> 32x?


In general the press release seems to be fairly rough to me and a bit of
a strange mix between technical details/wording like "remote apply" and
general marketing speak like "scale up and scale out"
