No, Joe, I spotted that, but thanks for your concern.  

This meme only arises in Rob's communications in connection with LibreOffice contributors
being encouraged to join Apache. Licensing is as much a community choice as it is a mechanical
matter, and as a member of both communities I have observed that the apparent encouragement
to weaken affiliation with LibreOffice diminishes Apache's credibility among many LibreOffice
community members. 

My comment to Rob was by way of a reminder that it would be better to stop acting divisively
like this. My apologies if this brevity was confusing.
