From Rob Weir <robw...@apache.org>
Subject Scope/Mission of AOOo
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2011 12:23:33 GMT
Simon stuck this in the next gen support technology thread, but I
think this deserves its own top level thread.  He declined to move it
into its own thread, but I will.

If I understand Simon's recurring proposal correctly, he would like us to:

1) Not produce any AOOo binaries for end user use, especially not for Linux.

2) Not support end-users

3) Transfer the OpenOffice.org trademark and logo to The Document
Foundation/LibreOffice, if not permanently, then at least for a
long-term loan

4) Concentrate on producing source code components that can be used by
LibreOffice

So in general, he would like us to not do anything that could be seen
as a legitimate continuation of the OOo project or as an alternative
to LibreOffice, the fork he helped created and continues to advise.

He suggests that we have not given this proposal serious
consideration, and now that the source code is almost checked in, we
should do so.

So what do you think?

-Rob
