Subject RE: [proposal] development for the first AOO release
Date Mon, 24 Oct 2011 14:59:09 GMT
   When we do the rebranding stuff again (sick!) we should have a final 
   product name at hand at that time.

I suspect that the restraints on identification of incubator releases will apply to however
it is branded.

It looks like the first one, at least, is definitely a "Technology Preview" release.  It and
the second will certainly be ways to bring the QA, localization, and related activities back
into action as well.  

Exciting times ahead!

It's fine to see a kind of roadmap starting.

Also to have a first public intermediate step with a clean IP is great, 
towards our first "real" Apache release. Then everybody can see that 
it's really going forward with OOo (as often the feeling is the opposite 
in the public when you read news and blogs).

And of course we have to make clear that this milestone is really just 
an intermediate step and not what the most would expect.

When we do the rebranding stuff again (sick!) we should have a final 
product name at hand at that time.
