This has nothing to do with Zen or Dennis. We had two threads going at once last week about
Marketing. I agree that they both reached the same general conclusion. I felt they both went
well and did not want to comment through my  neck and shoulder pain plus pain killer haze
to comment. Feeling better today.

i still don't see a huge need for a ML split, but I am not against it.

Since this is a split in the community there will be a delay due to the split. I suspect there
will be more bikeshedding on marketing issues on ooo-dev in the interim.

We'll need to make extra effort to make sure that ooo-dev knows about pertinent details like
downloads, support, and api OOo projects. We'll confront this as the case is made. This may
turn out to be good for the distinguishing between AOOo and the legacy OOo.

I don't want a website ML - I am -1000 on it. I think that the Marketing team will have a
much greater interest in the OOo website than you seem to think.
