You didn't get it: the channel matters.

If a blog from the Apache Foundation says "OpenOffice is not
dead" and a blog from TDF says " is dead",
well ... both can be wrong or right ...

OTOH, If the says "alive and kicking" the
message is way more credible.

This said ... I don't feel confident enough to modify the
main page: if I, for example, screw things up badly and
want to revert my changes, can I do that easily in
Apache CMS?
