Most of the LAO crowd meets at the Linux Audio Conference but the

let me try this way: the few bucks that linuxaudio.org could make via
adverstising on linuxaudio.org will - in commercial context - never be
able to pay for the services linuxaudio.org provides - and not even pay
for the administrative overhead.
If you have a viable business plan, we're all ear.

Dunno, that's a question for the management board, not me.
linuxaudio.org has no treasurer, no guidelines or infrastructure to deal
with donations or money. There are no established procedures how the
Board needs to agree and how to deal with such funds.
Besides that, a policy would need to be in accordance to the rules of
the Commonwealth of Virginia and Virginia Tech (our host). Ico has
elaborated on that in his email to you from 04/20/2012 02:57 AM CEST on
the consortium list.
