Dear Andreas,

BECAUSE PGADMIN IS FREE SOFTWARE ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED FOR PERSONAL NEEDS
AND CONTRIBUTED TO THE PUBLIC AS GENEROUS DONATION, WE DO NOT GUARANTEE
ANYTHING, [TO THE EXTENT OF THE LOCAL LAW], ON THIS FINE PIECE OF SOFTWARE IN 
TERMS OF USABILITY,FUNCTIONALITY OR FREEDOM OF DEFECTS. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Thanks. This sounds much better. Let us just add "TO THE EXTENT OF THE LAW", 
otherwise the sentence may be void in France (per previous court judgement).

> We should rise a fund to insure this Euro thing, don't you think? :-)

Absence of liability is not allowed in France and probably in several 
countries. As a result, when starting Debian you can read 'Provided without 
liability to the extend of the local law' (from memory).

But, defining a maximum amount if allowed. Defining a "One Euro" amount is 
quite usual as it is a much better garantee than rejecting liability:

IN COUNTRIES WHERE LIABILITY CANNOT BE RESTRICTED, PGADMIN SOFTWARE 
DEVELOPERS, CONTRIBUTORS AND ANY PARTY PROMOTING OR DISTRIBUTING PGADMIN 
SHALL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR MORE THAN ONE EURO FOR ANY DAMAGE.

Cheers,
Jean-Michel
