If you take that approach then I don't think there is any decision
that we need to take now, at least not in the Apache project.  But
when we have an end-user facing web portal hosted by Apache (the
future home of http://www.openoffice.org) then we'll want to have a
discussion on how we link to your user guide.

One other thing.  I think the Apache trademark policy is also relevant here:

http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/

You probably will want to review that and see if you would need any
approvals from Apache for the trademarks and/or logos that you use in
the user guide.
