Sean,

> Alright, then off the record, what'd they say?  -sc

An employee at one Federal Reserve Bank was very enthusiastic about the new 
TSearch features.   However, he does not speak for that FSB or even for his 
department, so we can't really use the quote.

Bummer :-(

This is a continuous problem with getting quotes for PostgreSQL.  Lots of 
large corporations and gov't agencies use it, but nobody wants to hassle with 
their legal department in order to get clearance for a quote.

Mind you, this isn't just us ... proprietary software companies run into the 
same thing.  Unlike us, though, they can offer discounts or free services in 
exchange for quotability.

Suggestions, anyone?
