That's what the Vendor Directory on sunhelp.org is for:


You can see there where I have the vendors listed as "Sponsors", "Contributors"

The SALES list is a mailing list (just like the GEEKS, RESCUE, or SUNHELP
lists) to be used for individual sales listings, not a general directory
of people who sell equipment.
