Kay and I put all the web content is in the AOOo svn at -  /incubator/ooo/ooo-site/trunk/

The CMS build is a work in progress as different parts present differing html. I planned to
work on this some more but I have been down with a pinched nerve. Pain killers are the only
reason I am typing now.

Joe Schaefer and I discussed this sometime ago when I split the OOo site over from the incubator
site tree. There is this JIRA ticket for a staging version.

INFRA-3933 staging site - - using the Apache

I'll put up a build on my people site in the next day or two.

Also, we are waiting on Infra for Domain Registration Transfer - see

INFRA-3898 Transfer the openoffice domain from Oracle to ASF

and Apache OOo stewardship of these domains.  There are far too many different kinds of content,
I imagine, to have a single way to transfer all of them, so I think we really need to just
start on at least some rebranding and figuring out which ones can be moved (or changed) independently.

The content is there and I am here to help anyone with the wrapping if they are ahead of me.
There are instructions.

One issue I think we need to address is that the people who will support this added infrastructure
need to become enabled to work with APache Infrastructure. Perhaps these are people who should
be offered Commiter and not PPMC if elected by the PPMC. Maybe these are the individuals where
an ICLA first policy should be used. We need many volunteers for AOOo infrastructure.

I think so.
