Thanks Ross, much appreciated. The thought was that the project would most 
benefit 
from an Apache community development mentor with no past history with 
OpenOffice.org. 
The goal most seem to agree to is one of unification. So a 'Special 
Envoy', forgive the 
exaggerated metaphor, may be more effective. Danese has wonderful history, 
but this project
is now moving forward re-born, in a sense. It deserves fresh leadership. 
IMHO.
