Do you then see no role for support for whatever project at the unskilled (ordinary member
of the public) user level within the Apache structure?  

If the Forum continues to provide such support for OpenOffice and its various forks, including
it is to be hoped the forthcoming Apache version, which is the wish and intention of its Volunteer
