As a member of the Incubator PMC, I am willing to submit the following
question via <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL>:

    "AOO official binary artifacts"

    May the Apache Open Office podling consider binary artifacts prepared as
    described in this passage "official", in the sense that their sense that
    their release is an "act of the corporation" and their contributors are
    indemnified?

        http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#what

        The Apache Software Foundation produces open source software. All
        releases are in the form of the source materials needed to make
        changes to the software being released. In some cases, binary/bytecode
        packages are also produced as a convenience to users that might not
        have the appropriate tools to build a compiled version of the source.
        In all such cases, the binary/bytecode package must have the same
        version number as the source release and may only add binary/bytecode
        files that are the result of compiling that version of the source code
        release.

My preference would be to have someone more invested in AOO serve as advocate,
but I will do it if no one else steps forward.

Marvin Humphrey
