(I don't want to get into semantics)

But not really. It is US Non profit. We do support organizations around
the world of course (in theory). For example SPI sponsored the PgDay.IT
last year.

I think we (as the postgresql community) should focus on regional
efforts but that regional efforts should be handled by those most
capable, regardless of where they are.

PGEU is a regional effort but if there is a distinct limitation on
participation I can see friction being caused between PGEU and the
other larger organizations such as SPI or USPUG (should it ever exist).

I would absolutely hate to think that we would as a US org limit our
ability to get things done by people only in the US. I think it would
create a rift in the community.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
