Mainly because Apache trademark policy requires as a minimum it to be Apache
OpenOffice.org. If that is what you mean by "leaving it alone", ok but it is
a difference and we need to tie down a consistent name we all understand. So
far we seem to have discussed Apache Office, Apache OpenOffice, Apache
OpenOffice.org and possibly just plain OpenOffice.org. We need to decide
which it is going to be and probably given what I read at Apache trademarks
plain OpenOffice.org is a non-starter. If a mentor wants to say otherwise
fine, at least we have one point of clarification.
