Sorry -- but what exactly do you mean by "ownership" ?

Ownership as in "you can't do anything with this because I'm now the
legally defined owner and I'll sue you if you try"; or "editorial
responsibility, and I don't give two hoots who legally owns it" ?

The first is going to bring the sky down on your head; the second will
be welcomed by people like myself, particularly as:

Besides which, in case of difficulty, you can always publish an
"[Un]Official PostgreSQL HOWTO" as an alternative to the one already in 
existence, and let the readership decide.  
Quality will always win.
