My take on this discussion so far  (and I am certainly NOT the definitive
judge on this):

* there is the listing on the consultants page itself:

concerning the actual content we are discussing. This does not have a (TM)
after Apache OpenOffice. I thought this was the original cause of objection.

And, we can see from the listings on the consultants page that we did not
enforce a (TM) after Apache OpenOffice on the consultants page.

* there are the actual websites of the consultants, like yours, and this
submitted one up for consideration.

It seems there is  more concern to enforce a (TM) symbol after Apache
OpenOffice for these third party websites.  However, this is not something
required by Apache.


The important factor is referencing OpenOffice as "Apache OpenOffice", and
not the use the of the (TM) after the name.

The website,, seems to have all bases
covered near as I can tell -- correct naming and use of (TM).
