Here's part of my confusion, we already say that vendors listed are
supposed to have an Evergreen offering page. This is copy and pasted from

"Show support for the Evergreen community by adding a visible link on their
Evergreen offering page to the Evergreen community web site at"
How is a link back to that page a big deal?
