I replied privately, but to summarize:

that page is someone's effort to informally comment on the
status of various distributions beyond just a list of
what's certified (and does include a link to the certification
page).  As such, it's now substantially out of date, missing
the last three releases of the community distributions Fedora,
Ubuntu and OpenSUSE, and three or four of Mandriva. So it's probably
approaching two years old.

The page should probably be removed unless someone wants to
undertake maintaining it.
