The only effect of this re-write seems to have been to remove my company's
name from the list, though Red Hat is now credited. This probably means
little to many people, but clearly a lot to me.

Could I ask for an explanation as to why?

I have heard no objection? If there is, please say so now. I have no problem
with such comments being aired.

The criteria for inclusion previously was major feature contributors - now
it seems to be something else. What is the rationale now? If that is clearly
stated, I'll be happy, as long as it isn't specifically crafted to exclude.
As an aside, 2nd Quadrant's view would be that PostgreSQL is a strategic
part of their overall I.T. plan - as I dare say do about 12-20 other
