Comment added by Dennis E. Hamilton:

I've previously indicated that I prefer Option 2 also.  

Although I feel a bit awkward working on a dual-licensed document where I have no interest
in the LGPL case, only the CC-BY case.

I can manage to deal with that in any contributions I make to ODFAuthors works.

I think there are other reasons to stay on ODFAUthors.  

First, it continues to honor and build on the contribution that ODFAUthors and those works

Secondly, it is not clear to me how clean the provenance of those documents happens to be.
 That matters if continuation work is brought under an ASF project.  Continuing contribution
on ODFAuthrs there doesn't make the provenance any worse.  It does avoid having to deal with
questions about the provenance.

On the other hand, I have to remind myself that it is unwise to fork any of those documents
outside of ODFAuthors, even if I have contributed significant content to any of them.  I can,
of course, fork my own contribution wherever I like, but only that contribution.  At this
point, that's pretty hypothetical because I have failed to make any contribution to the documentation.
 I am keeping the option open, though.
