Did a smallquicksimple research:


- MySQL seems to call it "Customers":

http://www.mysql.com/customers/

note: on the top bar, 1 click away from the home page.



- Firebird doesn't seems to serve the page on their main site, but on
ibphoenix under the "Firebird Users" name:

http://www.ibphoenix.com/main.nfs?a=ibphoenix&s=1142330367:630751&page=ibp_users_firebird

note: not on their sourceforge home page, but on the foundation site, not
easy to access.



- SQLite, couldn't find any information, even googling.
