PostgreSQL is a complex software project, and managing it is difficult. We have found that many enhancements to PostgreSQL can be more efficiently developed separately from the core project. Separate projects can have their own developer teams, email lists, bug tracking, and release schedules. While their independence makes development easier, it makes users' jobs harder. They have to hunt around looking for database enhancements to meet their needs. This section describes some of the more popular externally developed enhancements and guides you on how to find them.

Many PostgreSQL-related projects are hosted at either GBorg or pgFoundry. There are other PostgreSQL-related projects that are hosted elsewhere, but you will have to do an Internet search to find them.
