But that was the point of my proposal,
to get official "advertisment" from the kolab.org webpages
for companies that do not cleary contribute back in code or money,
you need to fullfil the strict criteria.
Otherwise the companies that contribute or are completley
dedicated to Free Software are at a disadvantages.

PostgreSQL is Free Software, so it would fit the criteria.
A company that actively supports Oracle is not a Free Software company,
no need for the Kolab project to advertise for them when we have companies
that contribute significantly or completely do Free Software databases
like PostgreSQL, MySQL or Firebird.
