I fear that we are back where this conversation started:

     Everything can be managed inside
     Apache OpenOffice project.

Even if I change "managed" to "accomplished" I do not see how "Everything" is achieved without
*necessary* bureaucracy.

I think it is time to deal with individual specific requests so that the conditions on being
"inside Apache OpenOffice" can be applied case-by-case.  With experience, I think it will
become clear.
