I like the idea, although I'm a little concerned that the word "Ready" 
is a bit ambiguous and does not clearly indicate what one would find 
when they clicked on the link. Perhaps we could preface it with one more 
word to give a better clue such as "Software Ready for Geronimo", 
"Projects Ready for Geronimo", or something of that sort?

Another option would be to change the catch-phrase completely to 
something like "Leveraging Geronimo" or "Utilizing Geronimo".   "Powered 
by" and "_____ inside" have become fairly common  but "Ready for" isn't 
quite as well known.

Apart from that I'd recommend that we keep the content for each item 
fairly limited.  Perhaps permitting just a one line description and a 
link to a project controlled website providing more detail on their 
level of involvement with Geronimo.
