Comment: *** Initial Draft for Podling Review ***

- (project add text here)
+ * entered incubation 2011-06-13.
+ is an open-source, office-document productivity suite providing six productivity
applications based around the OpenDocument Format (ODF). is released on multiple
platforms.  Its localizations support 110 languages worldwide.
+ * Most important to address
+ 1) Migration of the legacy website's content and services to Apache infrastructure,
including defect tracking, wiki, forums, mailing lists, and cross-service registration using
customized software not already supported by Apache projects and infrastructure.  Successful
negotiation of governance migration of user-supported services brought under incubation.
+ 2) Completion of the IP-review portions of the incubation checklist, which will require
getting an amended SGA from Oracle to cover additional source files; scrubbing of incompatible
notices from SGA-licensed code and resolving provenance of other existing materials being
+ 3) A Successful Podling Release
+ * Issues for IPMC or ASF Board Awareness
+ The code base pulled over from is undergoing development while incompatible
notices remain on the granted code.  This is separate from the scrubbing of dependencies on
incompatibly-licensed material.  RECOMMENDATION: Continue OpenOffice monthly reporting for
another quarter while IP cleanup is pending.
+ The current committers are not equipped to fully resource the migration of
sites and services under Apache OOo incubation.  Preservation of the Wiki is in doubt because
of resource and support limitations.   Cutover of mailing-list and registration/forwarding
systems is not resourced at all.  The ability to make anticipatory modifications of
in preparation for staging is also limited, with volunteer support and administration of the
live system possibly eroding.
+ Discussions with contributors of current user-oriented documentation have broken off;  it
is likely that the status quo will continue to be with user-guide contributions made separately
and under licenses the authors prefer.  This is not an immediate issue unless replacement
with ALv2 licensed materials is urgent.  Having updated user-guides reflecting details and
features of future Apache releases is worrisome.
+ * Community development progress
+ As of 2011-09-12 there are 72 committers, with 55 on the PPMC, up from 71 and 52 at last
report.  Eleven initial committers have failed to submit iCLAs and are out of communication.
+ Discussion is underway with the operators of the existing forums for migration
of the forums into incubation, with  adjustment of governance to provide appropriate PPMC
and Foundation oversight.
+ An ooo-user incubator mailing list has begun, and there are few user-oriented posts and
requests so far; any preservation, migration, or replacement of other lists remains to be
resolved.  A Japanese-language ooo- incubator list is starting.
+ A "Building for Linux" hackfest was announced on the project blog and carried
out over the Internet in the first full week of September.
+ * Project development progress
+ The trademarks have been transferred to Apache.  The domain-name
registrations are being transferred to Apache.
+ The Issue Tracking Bugzilla has been moth-balled as read-only and an Apache
Bugzilla established for continuation of Issue Tracking under the podling.
+ The main code base has been transferred to Apache SVN and is being actively tested and modified.
 Merging of additional work spaces from, and preservation of versioning history
is being pursued.  The current effort is focused on successful build of a counterpart of the
last complete build at
+ Test configurations of the forum system and the Wiki have
been brought up on Apache infrastructure fixtures.   Cutover of the forum system is anticipated
as part of the migration.   Other services may languish for lack of podling
+ Detailed planning continues on public wiki:
