Hi guys,

I just received this email, but don't have the energy to look after it.

Does anyone else feel like helping out James here?

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift

Justin,

We are considering using PostgreSQL as the backbone for hosting a new
application suite.

The appeal is obvious but what about security of data?  What is the
mechanism for securing the open source?  How do developers submit source and
who QA's it ?
What is the performance and scalability like and has it been benched ?
benched against other leading products such as MS, Progress, etc.
Our initial thoughts are for an ASP modeled deployment with up to a thousand
users per instantiated DB.

Is the license owned by a trust whatsoever and is there a possibility of it
being sold or differently licensed?

Would there be limitations or agreements required to accompany our product
once developed and licensed for use by customers ?

Are there any software vendors creating apps with this backbone ?  Anyone
other than ISP / Webhosting types.

What disadvantages should I consider ?
