I don't know what "addressing this kind of issue" means in practical
terms but I am not sure it's the job of the foundation to e.g, market
commercial offerings of businesses, even if those offering are related
to GNOME.  That sounds to me like a kind of homework that falls into the
plate of said companies.

We are a non-profit organisation with limited resources.  Communicating
around the commercial offering of /one/ company can be a
non-straightforward exercise, when you want to do it right.  Even more
for the commercial offerings of /several/ companies.  Do we really want
to take that route?

I'd be interested in learning more about what you mean by this, in
practical terms.  Could you give an example of what thing you'd like to
see happen in this area?
