Maybe I'm too late, but can I cast a vote for the Southern California
convention?

I regard the switch to SQL query language as a historical artifact which
neither requires ongoing emphasis, nor justifies disinheriting ourselves
from our historical roots.  We can easily support the postgres.org domain
name as an alias for the same machines as postgresql.org, and likewise in
the .com domain.  I presume UCB already has the trademark for the postgres
name.

Signature failed Preliminary Design Review.
Feasibility of a new signature is currently being evaluated.
