I think it is perfectly fine to share *facts* about the project and to
encourage interested parties to join.  But we need to be careful about
opinions and predictions.  You can have personal opinions, or even IBM
opinions, but you have no officialAOOo project-authorized opinions or
predictions unless it is discussed here first.

I think everyone will want to know, "When will we see the first Apache
release of OpenOffice?"  Everyone wants to know this.  I think we all
have our opinions on this.  I personally think it will be in January.
But this is not something that the project has explicitly agreed to as
a goal.
