Resolution of copyright, license and notice for content miugrated from legacy OpenOffice.org

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
migrated.

  * Issues for IPMC or ASF Board Awareness
  
+ None.
- The code base pulled over from OpenOffice.org 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 OpenOffice.org
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 OpenOffice.org
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 OpenOffice.org forums for migration
of the forums into incubation, with  adjustment of governance to provide appropriate PPMC
and Foundation oversight.

requests so far; any preservation, migration, or replacement of other lists remains to be

repository from Google Code to Apache SVN without loosing history. After some discussion we
decided to move the code to Apache infra by 28-th September 2011 even if that would require
a clean check in without history.
