Well that's what Damien just said the rest of PostgreSQLFR don't want to
do because of all the work they've put in making it French-specific.
It's a shame because it will mean more work, but I can understand their
reasons.

Err, no - I think it was only you that thought we should be doing that.
Every one I spoke to thought it would be a heck of a lot of ongoing work
for very little gain to the community, except those make a business of
training of course.

I'd be very happy to visit Prato again - you're correct, it was very
well organised and a very nice place. There are also lots of other nice
places in Europe though - we should try others if there are people
willing to do the ground work locally.
