The french organization is a non-profit one entirely dedicated to
PostgreSQL. It seems to me it was the first. Anyways, congrats. You've
done a terrific job (pgDay event, and now a non-profit organization...
nothing will stop you :) ).

I would have some questions to ask. For example, the purpose of the
organization is to prepare "events, conferences, courses"... so this is
mainly advocacy stuff ? or do you also plan to contribute on
translations, coding, etc. ? On the translation side, I know that
Giuseppe Sacco is doing a really great work (100% done for 1.8). But I
don't see any translation of pginstaller (PostgreSQL Windows Installer),
and the PostgreSQL translation is at most at 60%. Do you think your
organization can work on some of these ? this is also kind of advocacy
work :) And what about the manual ? Last question, do you know italian
people coding on a PostgreSQL project ?
Whooo, that's really a lot of questions, sorry about that :) with your
answers, I'll probably write a small paper for postgresqlfr.org. Thanks :)
