Joe you have a good point.

I guess the best solution is to exclude any books from the site. If you want to
endorse a book, do it on your blog.

Fair to everyone. Good book will be noticed on amazon (or elsewhere) and
praised by readers. We don't need to endorse good or bad books, neither do we
have to spend our time reviewing them and/or be responsible for any mistakes,
or hurt someone's feeling for not choosing their book.

Best option in my opinion is to be neutral.

Well summarized Ilya.

I'm +1 on what Ilya is suggesting WRT the site itself.

I think that we should feel free to highlight it in our project blog though... we selectively note blog posts of interest there, as well as (for example) events like the upcoming ShapeBlue training courses. So we are already implicitly doing a little bit of editorial selection in that communication channel (with the goal of highlighting things we think might be of interest to readers).

I am -1 on this (-1000 If I could)

Quite flabbergasted actually. What's wrong with a book icon on a webpage ? Packt was nice enough to email us (not sure if this was PMC only).

Checking their book for sanity is a 10 minute deal, one evening if you want to
be thorough. We are not talking about editing it, we are talking about making
sure its not a book about openstack with a cloudstack title…or a XXX book, or a
book written in a mix of english and french.

We can easily have a "sanity check" process on this list, with a lazy consensus
vote. If we want we can force this vote to have at least one PMC vote.

On the webpage we can write a disclaimer that specifically says "this does not
represent official endorsement by the Apache CloudStack project".

We are spending more time discussing it than it would take doing it. Having the
Packt book is terrific, there is no being neutral about this.
