Hello,

This is probably offtopic.  I need some advice about what to answer to
an email received in the ro(at)postgresql(dot)org mailbox.

"ISO certificate" is quite vague because there are different types of
certitifcates AFAIK.
He is probably asking about ISO 9001, for quality system.

I am tempted to answer that we are not ISO certified.  And to explain
that we will
probably never have such a certificate because in an opensource
project it is not
possible to force everyone to work according to some strict procedures .

Is this correct ?

I'm wondering whether it's true that all EU financed projects must use
only software
from ISO-certified sources .
