Subject RE: Migrating the web forums at user.services.openoffice.org to Apache servers
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2011 12:47:41 GMT
To avoid branding issues and the rules for incubators, I favor the simplified wording without
"Apache" if that works.  That is, Andy Brown's suggested

"OpenOffice.org and related products"

(assuming we are still talking about material accessed via *.openoffice.org and not *.apache.org)

Pointing to "Apache OpenOffice.org (incubator)" then makes sense as one of those related products.
 This can be adjusted over time, first when we have our first podling releases, and then when
we become a Top-Level Project (TLP).  There are many miles to travel, rivers to ford, oceans
to cross.

+1 to this suggestion for the forum header.
It is inviting and gives equal rights to all flavors of OpenOffice.org.
