I agree...

Do you mean, using PostgreSQL to store configuration (e.g. the lists of
domains and email accounts on the system)?

Are there FreedomBox deployments that are really so big (e.g. 100 users
or more)? That would be really interesting, because I would really like
FreedomBox to be usable for schools and local communities. But I thought
the most common use case at the moment is that just one user runs it on
very limited hardware (where PostgreSQL may consume too much RAM). I'd
be very interested to know how common smaller/larger installations are.

Kind regards,
