Well, the demonstration of initial confusion in the Team OpenOffice.org approach is certainly
clear.  The teamopenoffice press release is assumed to be "from" OpenOffice.org in the Slashdot
lede.  (To help with that, apparently Team OO.o holds an OO.o trademark or claimed to at one
point.)

I've read through the German materials at the site and, while Google Translator does stumble,
the gist of it is pretty clear.  This has all the appearance of an over-the-top plea to fund
4 guys to save OpenOffice.org from death-by-abandonment.  To further the confusion, the download
link for OpenOffice.org 3.3 is into <http://download.openoffice.org>.  The "Thank you
for your contribution" after a Paypal donation (they have my 5 Euro) is also a page on http://openoffice.org.

Oh, my what an... extraordinarily colorful and controversial set of 
quotes to rip out of the middle of different postings they put together:

http://developers.slashdot.org/story/11/10/14/1531252/OpenOffice-Is-Dying-And-IBM-Wont-Help

And boy, are there some misunderstandings out there.
