I agree with Ross, http://sling.apache.org/site/index.html is an
example (though out of incubation now) where credit is given to the
company which created the original code base (see "history" bit), with
a nofollow link as Ross suggests.

As long as you stick to facts, and use a nofollow link, I think that's
perfectly fine.
