Subject RE: [VOTE] Release Apache OpenOffice 3.4 (incubating) RC1

@Norbert,

I don't see any mention of patent issues in that message.  Since Symphony-related contributions
have not occurred yet, they certainly are irrelevant to the release of Apache OpenOffice (incubating)
3.4.0.  It is a good thing that IBM will ensure there is no encumbrance in anything that they
contribute under an IBM SGA.

In any case, unlike the situation with the simple declarations used by many copyleft projects,
iCLAs and SGAs provide clear declarations concerning patents as does the ALv2 itself.

If you know of a specific IP difficulty, I am sure that the AOO PPMC and the IPMC would appreciate
having sufficient details to be able to confirm the consequences.

What do you have in mind?

 - Dennis
