        What would people think of trying it out for a couple of months? We
        could start with Google ads to see how well ads work and once we
        have an
        idea of how much to expect, we could solicit ads directly from

    It's one of those holes I don't think we want to get down into.  But
    I don't have strong reasons for, other than sanity.  It just feels
    bad IMO...

$145,000 would pay for a lot of hackfests ... if we sold ads directly to
companies, we could control who was advertising.

And if we are getting that much potentially paying traffic, we should
have a nice, obvious link to Friends of GNOME on the home page,
contribute and support page!
