Hi Fabien,

Thanks for the quick feedback.

Sounds good, looking forward to it.

My primary concern is the upstream release monitoring we use in the
Debian package. It was using pgFoundary to monitor for new releases and
download release tarballs from. I've switched this to the pg_comparator
webpage where 2.2.6 is published, but that only links to the latest
release. pgFoundary listed the previous releases too, if you can link to
the previous releases too that would be great.

Yeah, I messed up that question. I was wondering the version control was
public somewhere. I've found zx80/pg_comparator on GitHub, that looks
like the one you mention.
