Subject Re: Source Code Sponsor of OOo

Note that the listed page is in no way associated with the ASF nor the 
AOO podling, and as best I can tell is directly infringing on a number 
of registered trademarks of the ASF.  I will be sending the admins of 
that website an email shortly demanding that that page and similar 
fundraising pages are taken down, and that their attempts (as it seems 
from that page) to create what I can only imagine would be called 3.4 cease, and immediately start using a new, 
non-infringing name.

At the ASF, our software is *always* free (as in no cost); the ASF will 
*never* charge for either our source code our or project's software 
product releases.

Any time you see someone stating or implying that you need to pay for 
any ASF-hosted code you should be suspicious.
