yes. I was asked and have wanted to issue this statement, but lacked
the clarity needed to make it make sense until fairly recently:

To Marketing, Discuss and other lists:

"OpenOffice.org is moving to the Apache site (URL). The project
continues to work and to grow, and you are invited, as always, to
contribute to it. But you need to do that now on the Apache site [URL}
and you need to join the relevant lists for contributions.

"The new project and community won't be the same as the old. That's
good. It also means that we won't be using the @openoffice.org alias
being a member of OpenOffice.org allowed. There will certainly be
opportunity and even intensity to building the new project and
community, and our success will depend ultimately on your
participation in the new community—which I hope you will help bring
into this world."

—and possibly some other information on where they must go to
contribute, though I'd rather point to a static URL wiki for that, or
to the existing one we have for the incubator.
I'd also formally be resigning or belatedly? from my posts.

Indeed, it was and is, and this would be a kind of final word, though
I have no doubt there will be more to follow.
