Hrm, This is true. I thought there was something on the sponsors [1]
page about this, but apparently not. Make a bug and assign it to me and
I'll see about making an addition to that page that has requirements and
some guidelines for it. Generally in the past, someone would email
either me or Kurt about providing such hardware. If we felt that we
needed it and could use, then we would go on from there. If they asked
to have some kind of ad on our page, we would only do that depending on
the level of things they offered to us. i.e. - if they provided a bunch
of bandwidth/hardware/support, they would definately get exposure on our
main page.
