Note: That's probably a bit of a rhetorical question, now that I am "VP
Conferences", but I honestly can't remember any actual policy discussion
when Leo put this in place back in 2006 or so, and since we've NEVER
done anything in terms of actually requiring projects to do this, it
seems a little late now to try to go back and force this into every
site's layout.

Having said that, I'm going to try to *encourage* projects to link to
the ApacheCon site, but I don't think that a text file in the www-site
svn repo counts as "documented policy".
