They are a publisher. They publish a series of booklets, with real
ISBNs and all. You can't buy them at Barnes & Noble or on Amazon,
but they're still real, live, dead-tree editions.
This is no different from most other publishers, except they charge
much more reasonable fees for their booklets -- they are a 501c3
non-profit organization, after all.

If I had mentioned a book that I wrote or co-authored, or a book that
I had been technical reviewer of (e.g., 2nd editions of the O'Reilly
books _DNS & BIND_ and _sendmail_) and I provided a link to the
publishers web page for the book, would you have done anything
