Apache OpenOffice *(EARLY DRAFT)*

Apache OpenOffice is an open-source, office-document productivity
suite providing six productivity applications based around the
OpenDocument Format (ODF). OpenOffice is released on multiple
platforms and in dozens of languages.

Issues for Board Awareness

* Veto discussion, uncertainties about the policy, now clarified after
an articulated discussion on the members list; this will reduce the
risk of similar discussions to happen again in future.
* Some resources (Forum, MWiki, Buildbots, new Pootle) are very important
for the project. We ask the Board to consider providing Infra with the
needed resources.

Community Development/Outreach Progress

* Community efforts: MWiki upgrade, logo refresh
* Events report: FOSDEM, ApacheCon NA in Portland

Project Development Progress

The next OpenOffice release will be labelled 4.0. Plans are to release
around June 2013. ...

The project released an update to version 3.4.1 in late January,
to include 8 new language translations made available by volunteers.

Community support forums remain popular with users.
The mailing lists for user support, localization, QA and marketing
are quite active. As Apache OpenOffice is a client product, we
continue to investigate ways to direct users to appropriate support
venues. The developer list, ooo-dev, remains very active.
