Not an issue for me either.  That fact that OpenOffice is under
incubation at Apache has been leading tech news for nearly a year now.
People who know nothing else about Apache know this fact.

But worth taking it through the voting process, IMHO, to see if there
are any other issues. One big issue or several smaller ones could be
enough for us to kill the vote prematurely.  But it would be extremely
inefficient to waste 48-hours preparing another RC every time someone
finds a single thing that is not consistent with the
self-contradictory draft incubation guidelines.  There is no better
time than the present to do a complete review.
