Well, I won't make any statements on behalf of IBM or Intel, and I'd be 
surprised if anyone else did.

However, I believe you can judge corporate support by the contributions 
to the community made by those corporations, and there are many ways 
they can do it.  Some that spring to mind are direct code donations, 
allowing employees to participate on company time, donations directly to 
the ASF, *usage* of a project, etc.

Both Intel and IBM have made generous donations that do reflect much 
investment, and I expect that both companies will continue to support 
the project with further donations of code as well as support via giving 
empoyees freedom to participate here.

That said we need to be sure to treat - as much as possible - the 
contributions of individuals as coming from those individuals.

As much as possible, we leave our employer hats at the door, and put on 
our harmony hats.

There have been statements in the press by IBM and Intel, IIRC.
