I think so. We are going to an acceptable page. The only question is whether or not to include
the "Paypal" hash tag, It is used now.

I think that if this direct link to the ASF donations page confuses users we'll find out and
can put into place a page in between.

We can also have a Donations button to the right of the Search button on www.openoffice.org.
