I think to Andrew's point, we have been comfortable with the boiler plate
you have used in previous releases. I believe it lists Afilias in this
manner "Afilias Limited (supporting the technical back end of the .org and
.info domains)" which is ok.

The quote Andrew forwarded has been approved by our management --- feel free
to use it in the release. (I've pasted again below) If you have any
questions on it, just drop me an email.

Also, since I am responsible for all of Afilias' PR, if you'd like me to
once over the release when you've completed discussions on the content,
please let me know. From what I've seen so far I'd suggest tightening up the
lead and adding in the one big idea as to why 7.4 is important. Basically my
experience has been that you need to say everything in a short and concise
lead or the reporter doesn't even move his mouse to scroll down before
hitting the delete button :)

Cheers,
Heather

Postgres 7.4 release]


Hi folks,

Here's a quote for the press release that's been approved by our
marketing folks.  How are companies that are mentioned listed in the
release?  In other statements of this sort, I've sometimes seen a
kind of listing at the bottom mentioning the companies in the
release.  But I dunno much about this sort of stuff.
