Some of the popular items such as travel and promotional materials are 
primarily suitable for recruiting new users.  But that doesn't really 
do anything for our existing users, who, by the way, are likely to be 
the primary source of donations.

A TPC membership would give us the ability to actually do the 
benchmarks.  I don't know if attendance at any meeting is required for 
that.

But that would be travel for the purpose of enhancing PostgreSQL rather 
than for the purpose of advocating to potential users.
