Futermore it would create lots of trouble. Just think about the
number of emails of random people we get on -project about totally
unrelated servers who run debian and even explicitly say that debian
has nothing to do with them. You expect them to realise the ad has
noting to do with debian?
A polite "no" would be great.
I entirely agree with this.
In addition, I would guess that people who are looking at the Debian website
are more than averagely likely to be aware of and bothered by the presence
of google ads. Also they are more than averagely likely to be able to find
the information that might be in the ads if they want it at all.
I don't think having ads, especially google ads, is something that would
enhance people's overall opinion of Debian.
(OT) Is information about Debian's financial status available publically?
Where would I look to be able to form my own opinion as to whether an income
stream from such ads, or from other sources, is needed?
