I was at that meeting and for the record: there is no european
postgresql user group (yet) - so a general list seems vastly appropriate
for discussing "general" european stuff.
If we ever get a european user group we can simply add a list for that
but what we now need is a list to discuss general topics and only time
will tell if we ever need eupug@, pgsql-eu-advocacy@ or nothing at all.

that list was not running on official infrastructure and only meant as a
short term solution until there was enough momentum and interest to put
it on official infrastructure.
