Subject Questions for the cheap seats.

Hi all.

This is my fist post here, been lurking from day one.

As a user I am trying to understand somethings that are going on here.

1: LibreOffice was forked due to the way OOo was being handled by 
Sun/Oracle.

2: Last month, Oracle stated that OOo would be turned over to a 
Foundation to run.

3: From indications, there had been some discussions between Oracle and 
The Document Foundation.  Not knowing what was said but it seems that 
they could not work out the problems.

4: Oracle makes a donation to the Apache Software Foundation.

Now with this comes some questions;

1: What will happen to OOo's code and trademark if the podling is not 
approved?

2: What will happen to OOo's code and trademark if the project does not 
graduate?

3: Since the transfer to the ASF is a grant, could the ASF transfer, 
grant, to TDF?

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Andy
