Subject Re: [VOTE] Accept OpenOffice.org for incubation
Date Sat, 11 Jun 2011 13:47:34 GMT
This is such a difficult call. Will OOo at Apache take off sufficiently
to contribute something of value to the ecosystem, or will it fail,
taking goodwill with it? Will it create division in the community, or
does that division already exist, and creating the podling will simply
make the fact of a division clearer, and therefore easier to work with?

Without the ability to see the future, I cannot fully answer these
questions. However, reading all of the threads on the topic, I come to
the conclusion that it is worth a try. 

Therefore, I vote +1, and wish all participants well and hope we can
make something excellent from this opportunity, something that benefits
all within the wider OOo community.

So +1 to this proposal.
