We don't. 

Well, we don't now. ;-)

It's now "Companies with CloudStack Integrations."

We *did* have probably because someone created the page without being
precise about the language used.

It's not a matter of not mentioning it, it's a matter of being specific
about how we acknowledge the relationships of companies/organizations
that do things around CloudStack.

Apache projects do not have corporate partners. We have no procedures or
mechanisms to accept a "partner," nor should we. Apache projects should
be vendor neutral, it's about community and code.

That said, we can list companies that have products that support Apache
CloudStack - but they enjoy no special status within the project. Does
that make sense?
