Just a question, though. How is the postgresql eu group embedded in this
hierarchy? I know there is a prospect of having hierarchy below, but
above it there is nothing (going on the draft statutes).

This makes Joshua's point a valid one, i think: the pgeu is disjointed
from the postgresql hierarchy (community) at large, organisationally.

Personally, I don't mind people from the US, Kazachstan or the moon joining
the pgeu. If they are interested in postgresql's furtherance in Europe,
why not? Be glad of the help, it is such a small pond to fish anyway,
when looking for members willing and able to spend time on a volunteer
basis on these things.
