I understood like this too, I think there are very different issues
between having adds on an individual project site and on a large
community site such as GNOME.
I believe for example that the FSF has a clear policy never to have ads
on it's websites, on order to show, and assure, of it's total
independence. I would personally find it strange to have adds on w.g.o,
as the site is trying to "sell" GNOME and not other peoples products. I
don't think MS/HP/SUN... have ads on their websites other than for them
and their close partners.
