That naming convention *might* be a problem.  As I understand it,
"Getting Started Guide for Apache OpenOffice" is OK, but "The Apache
OpenOffice Getting Started Guide" would not be.  They latter name
suggests it is part of Apache OpenOffice.

Compare:  "The Microsoft Office Getting Started Guide for Excel"
versus "Getting Started with Microsoft Excel"

Generally, avoid using "Apache OpenOffice" as an adjective /modifier
unless talking about actual Apache release, e..g, Apache OpenOffice
Calc, etc.
