over in jakartaland we ended up removing our listing of companies
providing commercial support from the main website. we had a low bar
(you just had to provide a patch and talk a committer into committing
it) but that proved problematic. browse
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/jakarta-general/200307.mbox/thread
for the threads about the vendor page to understand the issues. in the
end, we couldn't reach consensus about a way to take it forward so it
was removed.

using the wiki (as struts does) is probably a better approach. it
allows an easy and consistent bar. the pmc must actively oversee the
wiki and so can ensure a level playing field (no deleting competitors,
for example). it might be a good idea to add a section on approprite
wikiquette to the page.
