Afterthought: We cannot just blissfully replace copyright notices, either.  It doesn't work
like that.  So we need to look at the footers we are replacing and ensure that we are not
crossing a line with our new one.  This may mean we can't do it wholesale.

No, I don't believe the standalone use of the feather is appropriate yet.  The full footer
has the proper incubator symbol on the other end.

The adjusted figure with the gulls over Open seems fine, since it is part of the symbolic
recognition for OpenOffice.org.  The asymmetry does not seem unpleasant.

I would like to see the full English language footer though, and we need to know what the
non-English forms are in English.  This may also be an inappropriate form for notices, or
else they may need to be dual-language.  We'll need help to figure out what the appropriate
formalities are for that, since there are legalities involved.

Finally, it is the case, at the moment, that the project is Apache OpenOffice.org (incubator).
 Do we have a timeline for the earliest we would expect to go live with this?  I'm concerned
that it locks us into having the Apache project core development and the OpenOffice.org site
identified in ways that are not differentiated.  It is not clear to me that we have resolved
this in the context of refactoring the brand (or not).  

Or is this limited, so far, to the pages found at OpenOffice.org and not Apache.org?

Any chance you could add little micro "smiley faces" to the gulls :-)

Personally, I prefer the original. I assume, that you do not need to 
include the Apache feather (ashamed to admit I did not read Apache's 
requirements).

I seem to remember more color in another version. I must be loosing my 
memory.
