Btw, your mails appear to be sent twice to the ML. I recognized that
before already...

Cheers
Daniel

>>> == Marketing ==

>>> and developing the selling of marketing collateral around the
>>> OpenOffice.org brand. There is potential to independently raise money to
>>> substantially improve the quality and take up of the code that was not
>>> realised previously.
>>>
>>> == Education ==
>>> Create a '''strong bridge between !OpenOffice.org and the Educational
>>> World''' :
>>>
>>> * Provide a place for !OpenOffice.org users, in Education context:
>>> discuss about adapt !OpenOffice.org to your pedagogy, your needs ..etc
>>> (all levels of Education are concerned )
>>>
>>> * Provide and promote tools adapted to pedagogical use, around
>>> !OpenOffice.org
>>>
>>> * Write code together : train students to OpenOffice.org source code,
>>> create new features, experiment and reverse the best code to be
>>> integrated, following the
>>> [[http://education.openoffice.org|OpenOffice.org Education Project
>>> model]] and the [[http://www.educoo.org|EducOOo effort]].
>>>
>>> * !OpenOffice.org has also maintained various mentoring projects and
>>> efforts and are in demand
>>>
>>> == Alignment ==
>>> The developers of !OpenOffice.org will want to work with the Apache

>>>
>>> == 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

>>> 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 ===
>>> The following mailing lists:
>>>
>>> * `ooo-dev@incubator.apache.org` - for developer discussions
>>>
>>> * `ooo-commits@incubator.apache.org` - for Subversion commit messages
>>>
>>> * `ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org` - for JIRA change notifications
>>>
>>> * `ooo-notifications@incubator.apache.org` - for continuous build/test
>>> notifications
>>>
>>> '''Note''': a users mailing is not being requested at this time. It is
>>> anticipated that users will interact with the community through existing
>>> !OpenOffice.org systems, which are forums, based on phpBB.
>>>
>>> === Other resources ===
>>> A subversion repository
>>>
>>> A JIRA issue tracker: short code "OOo"
>>>
>>> Pootle server (suggested for localization centralization)
>>>
>>> phpBB end-user forums
>>>
>>> Download site
>>>
>>> TBD: some idea of how much build infrastructure measured in hardware.
