>
> [[http://community.apache.org/|Community Development]]
>
> We are interested in further exploring these options.

> == A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ==
> !OpenOffice.org in itself is a very strong brand.  Our primary

>
> == Documentation ==
> Additional reading on  !OpenOffice.org can be found at the 
> [[http://www.openoffice.org/|existing project's website]].
>
> == Localization ==
> This part is mandatory, and an important step in the organization.
>
> == Initial Source ==
> The initial source will consist of a collection of !OpenOffice.org 
> files as specified in Oracle's submitted SGA.
>
> During incubation, we will seek a grant to the following additional 
> items:
>
>  * 
> [[http://hg.services.openoffice.org/DEV300/file/DEV300_m106/mysqlc|MySQL 
> Connector module]]
>
>  * 
> [[http://hg.services.openoffice.org/DEV300/file/DEV300_m106/default_images|default 
> images]]
>
>  * 
> [[http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/ChildWorkSpace|ChildWorkSpaces 
> (CWS)]]
>
> == External Dependencies ==
> !OpenOffice has external dependencies, including source and binary, 
> required and optional, under a variety of licenses.  A list of these 
> dependencies can be found 
> [[http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/External/Modules|here]].
>
> We acknowledge that it is a podling graduation requirement to review 
> these dependencies and to get the product into conformance with Apache 
> requirements.  The details will vary on a  case-by-case basis, but 
> options available to us include:
>
>  * Substitute an external dependency with one having a compatible license
>  * Contact the owner of a dependency and asking for a compatible license
>  * Replace a source dependency with an unmodified binary dependency
>  * Make a feature be optional, or user-installed
>  * Rewrite a feature to avoid the external dependency
>  * Remove a feature along with its external dependencies
>
> Note: This task will be aided by the help of project members who work 
> on IBM Lotus Symphony, who are familiar with many of these issues from 
> a similar effort done on that product.
>
> == Cryptography ==
> !OpenOffice.org supports digital signatures and encryption of 
> documents.  The project will complete any needed export control 
> paperwork related to these features.
>
> == Required Resources ==
> Note: It is recommended that after this proposal is accepted, that 
> there be a consultation with ASF Legal Affairs on the trademark 
> *before* any project infrastructure is created.

> === Mailing Lists ===

>  * `ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org` - for JIRA change notifications

> '''Note''': a users mailing is not being requested at this time. It is

> === Other resources ===
> A subversion repository
>
> A JIRA issue tracker: short code "OOo"

> Pootle server (suggested for localization centralization)
>
> phpBB end-user forums
>
> Download site

> == Initial Committers ==
> In order to help encourage the creation of a broad and diverse project 
> built upon merit, as required of an Apache project, we have not loaded 
> the initial committer list with contributors from a single company. 
> Our intention is for the initial committer list to be representative
