Let me add that I often mention the company sponsoring a features when I
do a press interview or talk about a feature at a conference, if I know
who the sponsor is. It would be good to at least have a wiki page where
we could list the sponsors so people who publicize features would know.
I know I mentioned NEC as the sponsor of our SE-Linux integration during
my InformationWeek interview with Josh Berkus. The article mentions
KaiGai Kohei, but not NEC:
