Actually in that note I did mean "we" as the Apache OpenOffice
project, in the sense of "the Apache OO project wishes to continue to
have user guides produced for the Apache OO product". In that note, I
was not talking about where, how, or by whom those user guides might
be produced, only the format of the source documents to be produced
and maintained.

The issue of where, how, and by whom was (and is) in my mind a
separate question. When Andy Brown brought up ODFAuthors as a possible
production site, that changed the discussion from "what" to "where,
how, and by whom". My second note was on that topic... how ODFAuthors
could potentially be used to produce the "what".
