you are right. ditch the idea.

still, it might be useful to somehow label "for profit" as in "this page
might contain advertising hype and somebody's trying to make a living
out of it" and non-profit as in "community or privately maintained site
with no corporate or institutional backing".
this is not to create artificial divides, but just to avoid
misunderstandings. i have absolutely nothing against people trying to
get some money out of linux audio, but it is helpful to see at a glance
whether a page is for profit or not (i tend to read pages differently
depending on that), and whether somebody is speaking with a personal
monetary interest.
but then, all this is probably taken care of by the imprint section of
the websites, so we can just leave it to the site maintainers themselves.

yes. as i said, i was dreaming something up.
perhaps a nice "linux audio social contract", no longer than one page ?
(daniel, iirc it was you who complained about the gpl being too long and
nobody reading it - i agree totally!)

but this probably justifies a new thread.

i was trying to find a policy that will prevent a gazillion of
application-specific sites from trying to get into the webring (as in
.sourceforge.net). so s/project/application should make it
more clear.

well, you are right, common looks is a bit much...
from my experience at the university, a corporate design is beyond
diplomacy and well into the realm of "the art of war" :)

let's just come up with a logo and a nice webring banner that will mix
well with whatever design the site has (such as tweakable colors and
decent transparent anti-aliasing), perhaps even a black-and-white logo
that can be colored any old way.

yes, definitely.
