Jan--

In my opinion, the short answer is "yes"...see general trademark use on:

 http://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/#guidelines

The guidelines on the use of the Apache feather apply to the Apache
OpenOffice logo as well, *and*, it has the "tm" mark in it. But, do, if you
use set it up so it links to either:

http://www.openoffice.org/

-- or --

http://openoffice.apache.org

Maybe wait a day to do this to see if there are any dissenting opinions to
this, though.
