To me, there are two things Id like to be "PostgreSQL Certified":

 - individuals
 - companies

Id really prefer my company be certified by the community rather than by
a company, despite the full respect I have in SRA's engagement in
PostgreSQL and that we all know their contributions.

Count on us (Dalibo) and us (PostgreSQLFr non-profit).

Definitely. We discussed the topic at Prato. We were talking there about
it could be a project inside PostgreSQL-Europe.

I'd be more than happy if this could be a Worldwide project instead.

Yes, I think so. Dalibo could contribute too, on its own. I know some of
the non-profit that can contribute too.
