But that was because a single company dominated--a less than desirable situation.

Yes, other than covered by different license, not dominated by a
single company is the major difference between AOO and OO.o.

also working with the Apache OO lists in English. Localization would be essential. (ZH in
China differs from that used in TW; that can be accommodated: this is a linguistic effort,

It would be not necessary, if this is just for IBM and CS2C teams in
Beijing. Cause it would be more effective for the two teams to have
conference calls or meet in person.

More importantly, CS2C team can contribute a lot more than UOF and CJK
areas if they will. There is no way someone get limited in certain
areas as long as he or she can prove to be qualified.  At the
beginning of this project, we discussed something about setting
project leaders as it was in OO.o. But that is not how things work in

Share two important aspect of Apache Way I get in mind.

Contributors need prove themselves by contribution.
Committer needs get mutual agreement within community before they
commit any major changes in project.

I think these are the keys to ensure the project can grow in a healthy way.

My interest lies in developing ecosystems and learning groups that can sustain the efforts.
