Updates on the PGGraphics and WildDB Projects

This past week I uploaded the [http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-advocacy/2006-02/msg00143.php first batch of “Web Ad” graphics] for the postgresql project. They were donated by Mike Ellsworth and should be suitable for use in systems like adsense and other web advertising systems. Mike hopes to donate some more in a couple weeks, but these are excellent starters. Also on the heels of that, Julian Blanc of the [http://www.iucn.org The World Conservation Union] has donated some [http://pgfoundry.org/docman/view.php/1000089/169/iucn_elephant_photos.zip beautiful photographs he has of elephants in the wild] for anyone who wants to put some photo shots into thier postgresql related graphics. They are also on the [http://pgfoundry.org/projects/graphics/ graphics project site], please go check them out. Speaking of Julian Blanc, he has also uploaded a [http://pgfoundry.org/pm/?group_id=1000156 task list for the wilddb project]. You’ll recall the wilddb project is the IUCN’s attempt to port the African Elephant Database to an open source system. If you’ve got some spare time, I’d urge you to check out the task list and see if there is an item or two you might be able to work on.
