I'd say that 8.2+ is helpful, its saying that everything should work fine in 8.2+. I use Postgresql 9.1 all the time for all the apps. Without getting into a this db is better than that debate, it should work fine, if you use a vaguely recent release from mainstream sources. If you go for the nightly build, you may have trouble ahead :)
There is distinction between "working with" and "supported for". I use "supported for" in that context in which it means "certified against". I am interested in knowing what version of PostgreSQL Atlassian is developing against and supporting (questions and resolving bugs for). Moreover, the declaration that a product is supported for PostgreSQL 8.2+ implies that it supported for 8.4(probably true) and 9.0(not always true) and 9.1(almost certainly not the case)
