I'm not worrying about taking money from AutoDesk.
On the contrary, I saw an empty sponsors page and a page
advertising proprietary software.

So, are they still paying ? And is it fine by OSGeo policy to
advertise (by means of linking to, from its website) proprietary
software ? Because I read from the "about" page [1] that one of the
goals is "to promote the use of open source software".
