BTW, I see people keep insisting on projects from the board, which is
nice. But, mostly, the work of the board is purely administrative. What
I mean is: you don't need to be on the board to propose ideas. If you
have a project that would be interesting for PostgreSQL Europe, then say
it.

Right now, the main work of PostgreSQL Europe is organizing the annual
pgconf.eu, and the FOSDEM booth and talks. IOW, we are mainly on events
(http://www.postgresql.eu/events). But we would be really interested in
seeing more work towards marketing for example.

I guess we need a "what have we done last year" page somewhere. And I
guess that saying that makes me the right volunteer. Sighh...
