It's worth noting that these grants were always made by Team OOo (and indeed
by FrODev) at their sole discretion and without any ability to officially
direct them from the OOo project itself. I find it hard to see how Apache
would be able to unilaterally shut down an independent, complementary
activity like this.

As to Shane's point about referring to some other list; presumably, as in
other instances of this, we'd need to have a proposal formulated before
doing that, and hence the topic is still appropriate here.
