There is currently a bit rearagement movement toward figuring things out in
TDF OOo previously to the OOo annoucement, which happened last month on the
marketing list in OOo.

Just to add clarity by inviting them, you mean that we should join the
mailing list for discussing the proposal here. Or should we continue our
converstions on each location.

Should we add ourselfs as commiters?

I second this motion and start building an agenda for this conference call.
Also make sure other peripheral projects are aware like the ODF Union and
Native-Lang projects. OpenOffice.org is certainly much more than two
commiters and the message will take a few days to spread out through the
localized lists and dev lists.
