This is now online and it sort of looks alright, but is not exactly as

Here are the size guidelines:
Level Width Height Total pixels
-------- ----- ------ ------------
Platinum 220 100 22 000
Gold 200 60 12 000
Silver 180 50 9 000
Bronze 140 45 6 300
Steel 100 40 4 000
The problem is that there is a CSS-imposed maximum width of 150 pixels
and some wide logos are scaled down as a result. The most obvious case
is the canonical logo, the optimal size of wich is 260×34 (8840px²
with norm of 9000) and it is scaled to 150×20 (3000px²). If I remove
the width limit (locally, with firebug), the sponsor list becomes far
too wide. Should we care about this scaling down?
I am also wondering if the circle-like logos need a size bump? You
know, the area occupied by a 100×100 square is larger than by a circle
with diameter of 100.
Maybe I am bikeshedding too much :)
This is always going to be an issue. I think it's a good thing to have guidelines, but ultimately we have to go for what looks best on the website. Sometimes we have to bend the rules a bit in order to make a logo fit nicely, e.g. the Canonical logo or the circular logos.
My two cents.
