[CentOS] Status of PostgreSQL and PHP in Testing

Dear CentOS developers

I would like to have ask some questions about the PostgreSQL and PHP 
packages in the current Testing repository for CentOS 5.

In http://wiki.centos.org/QaWiki/TestingRepo there is a note, that the 
testing period is about 3 weeks. Currently, the PostgreSQL and PHP 
packages in http://dev.centos.org/centos/5/testing/SRPMS were created in 
September 08.

Do the developers need more feedback about the packages in testing? Is 
there something (a wiki page, a ticket in the bug tracker or something 
else) where the feedback can be collected?

Is there a testing plan for the packages (works with this and that 
software, upgrade from base works)?

What is the best way I can help? Simply sending feedback to the ML?

Is there a kind of policy for the upstream version, something like: 
version is expected to be in the next major Red Hat release, must be 
part of Upstream Web Stack or another Upstream product. Casting this to 
a concrete question: Can upgrades to PHP 5.2.8 or PostgreSQL 8.2.11 be 
expected to happen.

And is there already a concrete plan to move those 2 packages to Plus 

Regards and thank you for this great distribution. The more I work with 
it the more I like it.
