------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't feel fully comfortable to promote companies the way it is proposed 
here, just a single click from the homepage. We already throw around names of 
lot's of companies on the homepage directly and we (the Apache org) need to 
make sure to not present us as a collaboration between those, but as a 
commercially independent organization. 

My suggestion for a compromise would be to add a "Third Party Support" section 
at the bottom of the "Community" page and list companies in order of number of 
contributions (patches). We can phrase it like e.g. "the following companies 
are actively contributing to Apache Cassandra as part of the community and may 
also be able to offer professional support", or something like that. But just 
list and link them, without logos. Short line of text might be acceptable. But 
we should present them as part of the community, that's my main point here, 
whether on the community page or not.

number of contributions (patches). We can phrase it like e.g. "the following
