If these were articles, I'd agree with you - but they aren't, they are Projects, which means that like Blog entries, they are pulled direct from the source data at GitHub.

Which means that they should presumably be allowed the same latitude as Blogs as far as company mentions and "donate" banners go.

Can we hang fire on reporting these until we have a ruling on what is and isn't acceptable in a Project, given that we can't contact the author to ask for changes until it's published?

Any thoughts, please?
