Howdy, people.

Please find attached the list of Regional Contacts I have so far.   Please 
alert me immediately if I'm missing someone or I've got the wrong country or 
contact.

So far, we have translations for the press release into: Hungarian, Italian, 
Spanish, Brazilian, Romanian, German and French.   Presumably Japanese & 
Turkish have not been sent to me due to Unicode issues, yes?   Aleksander, 
Dennis, Jussi, this means that if you want to distribute the press release in 
your native languages, you'll need to translate it.   I'll send it in the 
next e-mail.

First thing, though, is for each of you to decide whether or not you can put 
togther at least a short list of local technology press contacts in the next 
two weeks.   If not, you should probably skip the rest of this process, as 
there's no point in slaving over translations if you're not going to send 
them out.

It looks like 7.4 will (finally!) become reality within the next couple of 
weeks.

Second thing is for each of you to send me your contact information as you 
want it to appear on the press release.   While you will be responsible for 
actually sending out the release to your own lists, we will also be posting a 
master list on the web for press to refer to.  Ideally, we would like a 
daytime (your local daytime) phone number as well as e-mail since reporters 
like to confirm things by phone.  I do realise that some of you can't do 
this, though.

Finally, I will be posting a second item to translate, so I will be adding a 
few of you to the translators mailing list.   That second item is a "7.4 
Press Kit" to put on the web.  Look for it, as we will need to get it up on 
the web page.

Also:  Who has their own, regional, PostgreSQL web site?   I'm pretty sure 
there are some in Japanese, Turkish & Brazilian.  Anyone else?   If so, we'll 
be giving you the web stuff to go on your site.
