Yep, we can definitely say we have "general interest". Would also like
to pass the info on to some other main Open Source projects too, as
they'd likely be interested as well.

Ok, sounds pretty cut back, but it also sounds better than nothing. We
might be able to achieve a stronger presence by having several large
Open Source projects involved all together too.

Good point. Lets get some more details from them, and then see if we we
can raise the level of interest around the place. There is a pretty
well established PostgreSQL presence in Germany, so it should be
possible to have a few people there.

Totally agreed. However, "Open Source" has become a media buzzword now,
so we might be able to leverage from that to further interest.
It's probably worth a shot.
