Yes, when Dave pointed this out the other day, I saw this as well.

We need to correct this page at least, and it would make perfect sense to
me to use these  terms for the wiki, the forums, and our main web site,
www.openoffice.org, as well.

I brought this up a few days ago but no reply to that.

Re the web site -- these terms seemed to be adequate for Sun and for Oracle
so why not us? But, it would probably be best to continue the web site
discussion on the previous thread --
