The "Guidelines regarding advertising and Drupal projects" page has been in an "incomplete" state since 2009.

The only part that's really missing, as far as I can tell, is an example of a theme that makes it very easy to remove the credits for that theme (i.e. by having a theme setting for them).

Otherwise I think the page is in pretty good shape. The comments raise some questions, but I think the document actually addresses them. e.g. aclight takes exception with a policy that Drupal core breaks but 1) Drupal core almost always breaks our policies since it is by definition special and 2) core makes the block easily removed.

It seems to me that this page is balanced and reasonable and expresses what most of the community would expect.

I think we should go with it.

I made minor changes to the page, mentioned the rationale, and set it to "no known problems". Followups are welcome, of course.

I found this issue while searching for project page guidelines. I could have sworn there was something about the sponsorship/ad info occurring below the teaser, but can't locate it.

I ask specifically, because while browsing newly created themes i noticed that all the themes by have extensively large teasers (far larger than the others) that include multiple donation/premium info.

Is this type of teaser considered acceptable?

@WorldFallz - yeah, I don't think this page applies but it could be updated to apply. Maybe open a new issue for that and link to it from here? It might be that we update this same page. is also related.
