I was not going to make such a distinction.

I was not sure where I should sensibly draw the line, as there will
likely be little differences in every distribution (since they tend to
make their own choices about what to backport etc). So I settled on
"rebrandings". But thats not a clear distinction either.

I guess what I really am looking to list is all the intentional "forks"
that added functionality or that removed the "PostgreSQL" label to at
least on the surface make it non obvious that it is based on PostgreSQL.

So the question is if "Pervasive Postgres" was really a modified
version. Since it kept "Postgres" in the name I would not count it among
the "rebrands".

However I guess the question is if there is a general interest to
maintain such a list from the PostgreSQL project and in that case we
maybe should discuss what everybody thinks should end up on there.

Maybe a newly created wiki would be a place to build up this list?

Lukas
