A quick announcement:  We just created yesterday a new marketing
mailing list for the project.  They are also discussing the AOOo
branding issues there.   If you have an interest in the topic, and
related marketing topics, I invite you to join that list, where you
would be most welcome.

To join, send an email to:  You will receive a

stems from one statement made in the Forums indicating that "Fundamentally,
as a project "" is done." If the following is true I think it creates a great
opportunity to refresh the brand. My proposal has the following provision:

suite name as "Apache" or "Apache 4

(or has undergone substantial rewriting) to allow the source code to be compliant with the
Apache 2.0. licence scheme.

likely result in a "code merger" with the Apache OpenOffice project which will result in a
very altered (compared to today's) source code.

for the Apache OOo project.
