Re: New policy for http://www.debian.org/consultants


I think we should rephrase item #1, it sounds quite harsh right now.

Furthermore, I suggest to drop the second item of the policy, because its 
motivation was that every consultant has to list two other means of 
contact, chosen from the list. We've dropped that requirement, so I think 
that this list doesn't make sense anymore.

Instead, we should only require that any URL provided is not an official 
*.debian.org one.

The second part of the text (Removals and modifications of entries) should 
probably also explain how to add an entry.

So this is my proposal, including all modifications mentioned above:

Policy for Debian's consultants page

1. Mandatory contact information
    You must provide a working e-mail address and answer e-mails sent to you
    within four weeks at most. You are not allowed to use your official
    @debian.org address, as required by the DMUP.

2. Further contact information
    If you'd like to provide an URL, please note that you cannot use an
    official *.debian.org domain, according to the DMUP.

3. Multiple cities/regions/countries
    Every consultant has to choose in what country (only one) they want
    to be listed. They can choose only one address to be mentioned, but
    they can of course mention additional cities, regions or countries on
    their additional info or on their website.

Additions, modifications, and removals of entries

If you wish to have your company added to this page, please mail the 
following information to consultants@debian.org:

* Name
* Company
* Address
* Phone
* Fax
* Email
* Rates
* Additional information, if any

A request for an update of the consultant's information should be sent
to consultants@debian.org, preferably from the e-mail address mentioned
on the consultants page (http://www.debian.org/consultants).

If the above criteria are no longer met, the consultant should receive a
warning message that they are about to be removed from the listing, unless
they fulfill all criteria again. There should be a grace period of four

Some parts (or all) of the consultant's information can be removed if
it doesn't comply with this policy anymore or on the maintainers'
