Dan's right, the certification process is equal to the effort expended 
administrating the PostgreSQL community. Whomever becomes the lead on this 
must realize that this is potentially a full time job. As well, although SRA 
is the best example we have currently of PostgreSQL 'testing/certification' 
it is not the model that we should be looking at for an opensource 
implementation. You want to contact Dru for advice, otherwise it will take 
you two years just to get you up to speed (this is not an exaggeration) on 
the issues.
