On the footer or banner it is easy to do - simply change either of these.

ooo-site/trunk/templates/brand.html
ooo-site/trunk/templates/footer.html

On Navigators:

ooo-site/trunk/content/topnav.mdtext

Plus any NL versions.

If we go anywhere besides http://www.apache.org/foundation/contributing.html

	with or without the #Paypal hash tag.

Then it needs to be a page that points to that link.

If we make the button as part of the footer then we can follow what is done for the site.
