To clarify, part of the confusion appears to be that if you google
search: osgeo sponsors

The site links presented by google include 3 results under osgeo.org,
one of which is to http://www.osgeo.org/sponsors/autodesk

No other sponsor appears to get their own subpage on osgeo.org (only
links). Since it doesn't appear that Autodesk is a current sponsor
(someone feel free to correct me), and all sponsors should get similar
treatment, I have disabled the page in question from public viewing.
Hopefully it will vanish from google at some point.

Do we have a google analytics account? If so we have some control over
these sitelinks.

Forwarding to SAC to look into generating a more useful sitemap.xml and
tinkering with Sitelinks.
