You're welcome. There was so much interesting conferences to attend that
I didn't find the time to actually talk more with you on the booth. As I
told you yesterday, perhaps next year we can share the same booth ?
perhaps also with the italian user group ? and/or others ?
I also think FOSDEM 2008 can have a PostgreSQL developer room. The
Debian one was really interesting, with some great technical talks.
Perhaps we can do the same next year ?

Thanks to the german community for handling the booth. (Oh and I'm
wearing the german PostgreSQL tshirt, thanks again).
