Subject RE: [User Docs] What do we as a community want for user documentation or AOO
Date Mon, 17 Sep 2012 02:18:47 GMT
It is my understanding that the openoffice.org web site content is not a subject of the Oracle
grant.  Although the ASF now has custody of the domains, there is no content grant.

The explicit licenses on content there continue to apply.

My personal preference would be to continue on ODF Authors so long as what is developed is
a derivative of work already there.

Whether republishing directly on openoffice.org becomes appropriate or not can be resolved
when the time comes.  Also, if ODFAuthors were not to be perpetuated, it might be necessary
to host it elsewhere, still not necessarily on ASF servers.

My gut says that they were "grandfathered" in with the original grant to 
Apache and that attempts to go forward with new docs would meet with 
serious push back from many quarters.
