> This part is mandatory, and an important step in the organization.

>
> == 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-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

>
> '''Note''': a users mailing is not being requested at this time. It is
> anticipated that users will interact with the community through existing

>
> === Other resources ===
> A subversion repository
>
> A JIRA issue tracker: short code "OOo"
>
> Pootle server (suggested for localization centralization)
>
> phpBB end-user forums
>
> Download site
