Subject Re: OpenOffice.org Apache Incubator Proposal: Splitting the Community?
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2011 18:05:16 GMT
Cmon Jim, he wrote a lengthy monologue which spelled
out his position.  As I read it, we could license
the OpenOffice trademark to the Document Foundation
for, as Simon put it, "business as usual" distributions.
If we wanted to we could specify a time/date/event
upon which that license terminates, and the "new"
stuff going on at the ASF would be distributing code
under the mark.
