There were not announcements this time and there certainly should have
been. However, there have been many, many announcements trying to get
people off gborg and I have very little sympathy for any who were stuck.

I personally emailed every single member telling them that it was shut
down. If they couldn't get up the time to move it in a year, I doubt
they ever would have had to courtesy to move when we asked, over and
over and over for them to do so.

Agreed.

Well I don't think we need anything on the postgresql.org but on the
pgfoundry.org page. I will also write up a mention on planetpostgresql
which will get aggregated in lots of places (including .org).

Well that is kind of dumb. Slony hasn't been on gborg for a year.
