Yes, Great Bridge did have their own packaging.  I can dig up the name; I did
the packages for them for 7.0.x a few years back as a consultant.  Hmm,
unless I'm remembering badly, it was simply 'Great Bridge PostgreSQL' and
they did very little modification from my packaging.  Tom Lane worked for
them around that time (late 2000).  The task was to develop
cross-distribution RPMs for TurboLinux, Caldera, SuSE, and RedHat/Mandrake.
That unfortunately didn't last long.... the Caldera OpenServer 2.3 RPM in
particular was very gnarly, being that Caldera was still using rpm 2.5.x
instead of a post 3.0 RPM, and they had redefined all the RPM macros...

My contact inside GB was Terry Carlin; initial contact was with Ned Lilly (who
is still around here somewhere; hi Ned!).

Wow, nice trip down memory lane as I read through my GreatBridge
correspondence archive... :-)
