+"With the donation of to the ASF, the Foundation, and especially the podling
project, was given a daunting 
+task: re-energize a community and transform OpenOffice from a codebase of unknown Intellectual
Property heritage, to a 
+vetted and Apache Licensed software suite," said Jim Jagielski, ASF President and an Apache
OpenOffice project mentor. "The 
+release of Apache OpenOffice 3.4 shows just how successful the project has been: pulling
in developers from over 21 
+corporate affiliations, while avoiding undue influence which is the death-knell of true open
source communities; 
+building a solid and stable codebase, with significant improvement and enhancements over
other variants; and, of course, 
+creating a healthy, vibrant and diverse user and developer community."

+<h2>Community-Driven Development, The Apache Way</h2>
+The OpenOffice code base was created by Star Division in the 1990's, acquired by Sun Microsystems
+1999 and later Oracle Corporation in 2010, before being submitted to The Apache Software
Foundation mid-2011.
+Today the project is being developed by an all-volunteer group of developers, testers, translators,
and other 
+contributors under the ASF's meritocratic process informally dubbed "The Apache Way", and
is supported by hundreds of 
+Open Source software volunteers from around the world.
+"Initially released a decade ago, the first release of OpenOffice 3.4 as an Apache project
marks an important new chapter in the life of 
+	a landmark project," said Stephen O'Grady, Principal Analyst with RedMonk. "Following months
of effort, the open source productivity 
+	suite is now licensed and built with the intent of courting a large population of users,
developers and ISVs worldwide." 	
+As a project in the Apache Incubator, Apache OpenOffice is overseen by a Podling Project
Management Committee (PPMC) 
+that guides its day-to-day operations, community development, and product releases. Apache
OpenOffice source code, 
+downloads, documentation, mailing lists, and related resources are available at <a href=""></a>
+For the first official Apache release of OpenOffice, the developer team successfully conformed
to the policy defined by 
+the Incubator Project Management Committee by identifying, removing and replacing with comparable
function those 
+libraries with licenses incompatible with Apache Software Foundation license policy.
+<h2>Future Developments</h2>
+Plans for future enhancements by the Project include support for additional native languages,
enhanced accessibility, 
+usability and performance improvements, and adopting new features and improvements from the
upcoming IBM Lotus Symphony 
+The Apache OpenOffice Project Management Committee invites people to join. There are many

+welcome. Check out the <a
