Thanks for doing the audit.

The Geode PPMC has noted the finding in the wiki with our site.

However, we'd like to see a good example of a compliant website.

The branding guidelines do not address feedback such as "logo in footer" or
"disclaimer is buried deep or below the fold".

Considering the Geode web design was forked from another TLP, is it
possible that some of the feedback is a bit arbitrary?

Otherwise maybe all incubating projects should have the same website
template, and then be free to evolve their design once they graduate to TLP.
