I'm ok with occasional mentions of CACE products on the lists since they 
sponsor us and their products are tightly integrated with Wireshark (and 
are good products based on my experience with AirPcap).  I don't want 
everyone to start advertising their products though.

I also agree with Ulf in that Wireshark itself should not contain 
advertising as it is open source software and thus is not tied to any 
one company.  The Wireshark program can direct people to the Wireshark 
web site and from there users can find out about CACE products and 
Wireshark University.
