I have been thinking about this thread quite a bit and I have come to
the conclusion that I don't like the idea of an EDB survey being
announced and publicized through .Org. It isn't news, it isn't an event,
it is not an announcement of a new Postgresql derived product. It is
purely a way to drive eyes to EDB and away from PostgreSQL.

Remember that in business *all* public communications are marketing.
This survey only benefits PostgreSQL in that it benefits EDB. Now there
is nothing wrong with that as long as the resources being used are EDBs,
not PostgreSQL's.

-1 From me.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
