True, because personally I was hoping that we could figure out how to 
get the forums integrated here within Apache OOo.  I'm trying to figure 
out how to be positive and welcoming in my tone, but I fear I'm not 
being too clear.

* The root issue for the community of people running the OOo forums is 
that both their servers and their domain name are going away soon.  The 
only question is when, which I think primarily depends on when Oracle 
pulls the plug on the server.

I'm hoping Apache OOo has sufficient interested and committed people in 
it who can and will work on helping part of the forum community find a 
home here in the podling.  But we'll see how well Apache OOo committers 
can do that, as well as seeing how much of the forum community is 
willing to change governance to meet Apache requirements.

If this doesn't work, then I wish the forum community well finding a 
home elsewhere, and they should let us know their URL once they're 
running successfully somewhere else.
