PostgreSQL Sponsorship

Last updated: June 1, 2018. View change history.

Sponsorship levels

There are two levels of PostgreSQL Sponsors:

  • Minor sponsors indicate organizations which have provided notable contributions in recent years.
  • Major sponsors indicate organizations that have provided significant and/or sustaining contributions over many years.

Contributions to the PostgreSQL Project that may be considered by the committee include, but are not limited to:

  • Funding of feature development, review, documentation, advocacy, administration, or other recognized needs of the project.
  • Employing staff to work on the PostgreSQL Project.
  • Providing servers and/or hosting for testing or project infrastructure.
  • Contributing to recognized PostgreSQL Open Source "ecosystem" projects such as drivers, extensions, graphical tools, and advocacy.

Sponsorship for PostgreSQL events will not be considered in determining PostgreSQL sponsorship levels.

All sponsorship recognition is at the discretion of the Sponsor Committee, who will decide on the status of each sponsor or potential sponsor on an individual basis. In exceptional circumstances, a contributor may be recognised at a sponsorship level for outstanding contributions over a period of time lower than the above stated durations. The decision of the committee is final.

Sponsorship Committee

Using the guidelines above, sponsorship is ultimately determined by the Sponsorship committee. The current members are:

  • Tatsuo Ishii
  • Jonathan S. Katz
  • Ilya Kosmodemiansky
  • Dave Page
  • Robert Treat

The current method of choosing who qualifies as a sponsor is via simple majority vote of those in the committee.
