Subject: "Apache Disavows Team OpenOffice.org e.V."

New article out by Brian Profitt on IT World:

http://www.itworld.com/it-managementstrategy/213997/apache-disavows-team-openofficeorg-ev

He has a good catch here that this page is still calling for donations
to Team OpenOffice:

http://contributing.openoffice.org/donate.html

Is there anyone who can change this page *immediately*?  I don't think
this is something we should wait until after we migrate the wiki.  The
information on the page now is wrong, misleading and confuses the
Apache statements on fundraising.

I'd recommend replacing all the text on that page with a simple statement:

"Apache projects do not solicit funds directly.  However, the Apache
Software Foundation graciously accepts donations of all sizes" (or
other such words as the mentors may suggest) and to put a link to:
http://www.apache.org/foundation/contributing.html
