So you think it's better not to apply (additionally) as OpenOffice? We 
don't have any assurance that the ASF will be granted a stand, and 
OpenOffice has always been granted one for years.

I was assuming/understanding that we would have sent both the OpenOffice 
request (highly likely to be approved; but less important) and the ASF 
request (new, so less likely; but more important). And that, if both 
were approved, we would merge the tables, or if one was approved we 
would share the table.

So no doubt we would all be together, in any case; I thought we would 
try and maximize the chance of getting a presence.

It appears Daniel has already sent a request on behalf on the ASF 
(deadline is in November) but I haven't seen it at or on the 
lists, so I have no idea about the contents. I just want to be sure that 
the ASF at large, and OpenOffice as part of it, get a presence under 
whatever name; and that we maximize our chances to be at FOSDEM.
