The proposal for a European PostgreSQL User Group was discussed.  The
main problem was that we did not have consensus about the purpose and
objectives of such a group.  As a result, it was not possible at that
time to decide on any actions beyond setting up this mailing list.

Possible purposes:
1. General advocacy of PG in Europe
2. Promote PostgreSQL people in the market.
3. Serving as a PUG to cover countries which do not have a national PUG
4. Mutual support among European PUGs

Certain possible actions were discussed:
1. Creating a legal body to hold funds for a European PUG
	- needs to be in the Euro zone, so not in Britain
	- the French already have such a body; it could perhaps do
          this job for an EuPUG
2. Setting up a certification programme to enable PG people to have
   status on a par with developers/administrators certified for other
   products.
