Subject Re: [Proposal] Change in Apache Branding...

My proposal in simple words is either 2 of the following options:

	* Make the first Apache release get the 4.0 name as it is basically a new
and mostly rewritten version of the current OOo source code.

	* Drop the version number from the Apache name. 
I think, I will add a third option here, drop the ".org" suffix and go simply with Apache
OpenOffice as the project's name.

I do not understand the point Michael made in that email.  Is he suggesting that no version
number be used?
