 with the project.  At one time or another Sun, Oracle, Novell, Redhat, IBM and others have
sponsored their employees to work on OpenOffice.  Some professional are recently retired
 and work on the project to keep their skills sharp or to "give back" to the open source community.
 Others have a business based on OpenOffice consulting, and volunteer with the 
 project to stay close to potential customers.   Others are students, studying software engineering
or a related field, and participate in our project as a form of electronic 
+internship.  Among our volunteers are several programmers with over a decade's experience
working on OpenOffice.  We are fortunate to have a depth of talent working on this project
+that would be the envy of many corporations.
 So our all-volunteer principle is a statement of how we are organized, as a non-profit. 
We do not pay for developers.  But this is not a statement on the professionalism and 
 talent of our volunteers.  In fact, very few corporations would be able to afford the kind
of talent that we have, as volunteers, helping with Apache OpenOffice.
