I could say the same about my business, or Enfold, or Plone Solutions,
or Nuxeo, or any other company that runs their business on Zope. The
difference is we don't have a link from every page of Zope.org, and I
wouldn't expect us to.

I haven't seen any comment so far, but AFAIK, Paul left this list after
it's total lack of effectiveness last year.
BUT, if a company appears as a member of a trade organisation (as ZEA
does on http://www.zopeuk.org) and successfully bids for projects that
companies such as mine would as like to bid for, then I'd question free
advertising on every page of zope.org...

Indeed, and the sole purpose of my original mail to zope-web was to
elicit discussion, so, can anyone suggest a neutral set of guidelines
for what sites should appear in Zope Exits?
Sites that are centered around supporting the Zope community and do not
exist primarily to charge for services or content relating to the site.
What do people think?
