[mirrorbrain-announce] 2.5 Release: PostgreSQL Support

[This release is nearly two weeks old -- I lag with the announcement.]

Version 2.5 was released: it adds support for using the PostgreSQL
database as backend, alternatively to MySQL.

MySQL is still fully supported. However, PostgreSQL is recommended now,
particularly for large installations with dozens of mirrors and more.
PostgreSQL support is an important step to a next-generation mirror
selection regime that is in the works. Migration is pretty easy; the mb
tool can export data in a format the PostgreSQL can understand.

The 2.5 release also sees major improvements in the mirror scanner. It
now produces a much more readable output and error reporting. This makes
it easier to see spot problems encountered on mirrors. Database
operations done by the scanner are more efficient in this release.

The installation instructions have undergone a rework to be more
complete, and reflect the recent changes.

More to come...
