Subject RE: A timeline for an Apache OO release
Date Sat, 17 Dec 2011 19:25:58 GMT
I think the push is going to be Apache OpenOffice.  It is being used in our speaking of the
project and releases informally already.  I think it is legitimate to show it on the OpenOffice.org
line, following on OpenOffice.org 3.3 with the Apache OpenOffice (incubating) k.l.m.

I concur about 1H2012.  There's a lot to nail down.  I speculate there might be one further
in-incubator release too, just because of that and lining up all of the deployment and support
structures and community establishment.  And bug fixes and updating too.

Ross asked about reference implementation and Don responded about reference build.  I don't
think "reference" is appropriate at this time.  Even though the proposal discusses the intention
to provide a reference implementation for an ODF producer/consumer, nothing like that is being
managed to as an objective at this point.  It doesn't happen by default.

That's a good question and I think is probably what I'm asking ;-)

I'm a little confused as to what brand the release will push, Apache
OpenOffice or OpenOffice.org.
