Well, first of all, when we had constrained resources at oe.org, we were
trying to limit the number of commercial layers, assuming that the company
behind such layer is well capable of providing hosting for their product.
That would mean BSP layers from semis, like Intel, TI, Freescale etc. or
commercial distro layers from OSVs, such as Mentor, Montavista etc.
We always welcomed community layers on oe.org, even BSP layers for platforms
that had no official commercial support, but also distro, apps and other
layers, as long as they had "supported by community" status.
And second, since now we have new servers graciously donated by The Linux
Foundation, we should not object to new community layers hosted on oe.org.
I'd let our admins comment on the burden, though.
