Yes, that was the initial thought...  Sort of along the "Eclipse Ready"
and "Built on Eclipse" programs -

Hmmm - interesting compromise.  I was going for the idea of "Geronimo
Ready" as a way to help promote/evangelize Geronimo and projects that
support it, so maybe a generic "Supports Geronimo" or "Geronimo Partner"
logo and page with a quick summary on their offering would suffice for now.
