Ping? I just tried to install a sympa server with postgresql for a
customer and really the situation sucks, fixing this would warrant a
stable update.

I'm unable to setup the Pg database just by answering the debconf questions
even if I use use LANG=C apt-get install sympa. It fails trying to create
the database because the sympa user doesn't have the right to create the
database. The upstream code tries to create the database even though
/usr/share/sympa/db/install-pg-db has already created it... in the
upstream script, the creation is always done:
# grep "CREATE DATA" /usr/lib/sympa/bin/create_db.Pg 

And this is run with user sympa that doesn't have the right to create
database (it has been created that way by /usr/share/sympa/db/install-pg-db).

Has this ever worked for someone ? Did someone install a fresh sympa
server with postgresql successfully ?

BTW README.Debian is full of outdated information as well.
