    Hi,

    I was supprised to find google ads on your homepage. As far as I know this isn't allowed by sourceforge.net

    You may not use your project web site to generate revenue, display advertisements or information about non-Open Source products, or to solicit donations except via the SourceForge.net Donation System.

    This message can be found in the admin panel and then going to shell/DB/WEB
    You might not be aware of this.

     
    • That's not what it says here:
