I'm all for an acceptable News policy -- but where do people turn to 
find out about commercial Zope offerings?

Maybe we should create a Zope Exits Content Type. As for inclusion 
within the Zope Exits maybe we should have
some kind of voting system with the top 10 being listed on the front 
page and the others sorted on a Zope Exits page.
This would make it more democratic than just a few people deciding what 
represents a great Zope Exit.

The mailinglists don't belong in Zope Exits because they aren't exits.
