Hmm, I thought you had a CWiki page in mind for some place you were already keeping some sort
of job jar.  I see I misunderstood that.

Where would you like the CWiki page to be?

Put a blank one somewhere in the tree that you want used for this, and I will do what I can
to add to it.

 - Dennis

PS: Meanwhile, I did annotate the draft terms-of-use page, and there has been more discussion
on LEGAL-104 as you know.

 Is there a bugzilla "project" for these.  www?

others need more care.  May be a few variations to use.)

URLs are somewhat random, some are fully qualified and others are properly relative. This
includes css and js that are not always found. These are the kinds of errors that will take
some tedious time to handle.

In this case if it's "We're sorry" then it's google friend connect and it's sorry I don't
have an account or any friends.

More questions, please!


>> 4. This page, for Downloads, linked from the ES home page, has a PayPal button and
solicits $25 donations for downloads: <>.
 The solicitations are for the "oooES" PayPal account.
> Yes, I've flagged that as well - Alexandro should be able to explain oooES. I think it
is in a similar category to Team OpenOffice. I've found a paypal button in the Greek site
to an individual for translation work. Not sure about others yet. I'll know when we're complete.
These were all sanctioned at some point and I think the PPMC will need to decide policy in
conversation with trademarks@a.o.
