Hi louis,

Fair enough. [1]

For me the first question, I suppose is the name of the application.

Looking again at the branding proposal page[2], notice that there are
two distinct images for an install graphics.

One clearly uses a product name of, released by Apache

The second has only the name Apache OpenOffice.

In the last comment on the page Dennis H. gives his preference, Apache
OpenOffice as the product name. 

Wondering how then folks want to use the name itself, if
that were the case?

I'm interested in your take on that.

Best wishes,


[1] You do know, however, that the mktg list I speak of is not the old
list at OO.o - so while at the moment the issues are rather core and the
dev list makes sense, it makes sense, IMO, to break 'artwork' stuff out
to the other.
