Here is a thread where I propose the "promoting" idea and general
agreement on it:

	http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-advocacy/2007-09/msg00257.php

and here is where I think you are agreeing to do such promotion in the
FAQ, at least:

	http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-advocacy/2007-09/msg00279.php

I have the email addresses and opinions of a majority of advocacy
posters.  I can post it again if you want or we can go through this all
again, probably with the same result.
