Hi guys,

   sorry but these days have been hectic on my side (not just work, 
however). I guess it is time to start a concrete and productive 
discussion on how to set a European Group of PostgreSQL users. I have 
gathered some information, thanks to the contacts I have made within the 
Open Source Working Group of the Italian Government which I am involved in.

   I have perceived a diffused interest on this topic from almost every 
PG developer/user that is participating to the list. Also, the fact that 
PGDay 2007 already has a few people registered from European countries, 
is an important sign.

   Anyway, I believe that it would be good to dedicate a private mailing 
list on this topic for gathering ideas and contributions and, at the 
same time, have a web space (maybe a wiki, as Federico suggested) where 
to report the decisions and the drafts that are taken by the group for 
its official start up.

   As I said, I already have an idea on the nature of the organisation 
(legally recognised in every country of the EU), however, I prefer to 
discuss it with everyone. It goes without saying that, should we decided 
to start such a thing, it is going to be a real commitment for the 
participants. I am not afraid of that, but it must be a group of 
responsible people willing to dedicate time and efforts on this cause. :)
