OK, does that mean we mention EnterpriseDB in the section about Oracle

just don't see where that line can clearly be drawn on what to include.
Do we mention Netiza, which is loosely based on PostgreSQL?   It just
seems very arbitrary to include commercial software.  If someone wants
to put in on a wiki, I think that would be fine because that doesn't
seems as official.

I agree that the commercial offerings shouldn't be named directly in the docs, but it should be mentioned that some commercial options are available and a starting point to find more information.

If potential new users look through the docs and it says no options available for what they want or consider they will need in the future then they go elsewhere, if they know that some options are available then they will look further if they want that feature.

something like
"There are currently no open source solutions available for this option but there are some commercial offerings. More details of some available solutions can be found at"
