Hmmm, yeah. South East Asia is a pretty big swatch of land and water. I
agree that getting a bunch of different emails is probably not a good
idea either. What if we just have an alias for his primary area and
point the other regionals to him until the community shows more
volunteers? Ala,

South East Asia:

 Thailand - foo(at)postgresql(dot)org
 Malay - foo(at)postgresql(dot)org

etc..

Then when a particular region crops up with community we can just
change the primary contact instead of having a global.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
