-	<h2>Concerning the legacy Distribution Project</h2>
-	<p>The Apache OpenOffice project distributes OpenOffice online, as a free download
<a href="">from our website</a>.  Although 
-this is sufficient for most users, we also known that for others users, a copy of OpenOffice
on CD-ROM or other media is preferred.</p>
-The legacy project had a &quot;Distribution Project&quot; that listed
the contact information for 3rd parties who would provide, at a charge, a CD-ROM containing
-OpenOffice. We've suspended this program, until the Apache OpenOffice project determines
how a similar service might be enabled in the future, one that will give 
-users greater assurance that they are receiving the latest version of OpenOffice.
