According to the "Incubator Branding Guide" [1] we must use the full
name "upon the first reference in a document".

So I think it would be fine to call it "Apache OpenOffice (incubating)
once on each page.  And then you can use the short form "OpenOffice"
in the other parts of the page.

I think we want to avoid using "" except when we are
specifically referring to historical information, e.g., referring to
prior legacy releases or the history of the project.
