Particularly if the issue of rejecting applications is a concern, an alternative is to allow anyone a listing provided they make some basic declarations (that they will offer Linux support, that they agree to the rules, etc) but that list members can submit good & bad references for them, accessible from the Vendors page. It could be at least as useful to see the poorer vendors rather than getting involved in a delisting procedure.
Because a vendor has to agree to the rules to get listed, you avoid the issue of unlisted vendors complaining.
