Latest Getmonero.org update proposes the removal of the Merchants page

Core Team’s ErCiccione posted a big thread1 on Reddit with the latest updates to the Getmonero.org website.

Probably the biggest one is the removal of the Merchants2 page from the site.

Currently new merchants have to submit a pull request and someone with write access to the repository has to review and merge that into master so it will show up on the Merchants page.

As ErCiccione put it:

Adding, removing merchants and in general dealing with requests from merchants is becoming very time consuming and recently started to take a considerable portion of my CCS-funded working hours, at the point that i’m asking myself if it really worth it [..]

The proposed alternative would be to link to external merchant directories instead. You can join the discussion on Github in the issues section of the monero-site repository3.
