above in general express the overall view of forum volunteers, I think; we mostly feel that
trying to impose the existing Apache structure on the forms is overkill and may stifle it.
 I recommend that the comments on the wiki page be carefully read;  note that the forum
is willing to modify its structures to fit in with Apache, but there does not seem to be a
similar flexibility on the Apache side.

when this all blew up on the ooo-dev ML a few weeks ago. Some may appear less flexible than
others. We are waiting for an actual proposal.

All true, but there are enough comments on the proposal wiki page to
update it. My guess is, after the comments are all build in, the
proposal is near to be voted on. I might find some time to do it the
next days, hopefully. Other volunteers (esp. from the forum) highly
welcome :-)
