I have a couple of questions with regard the ownership and legal
position with regards the gift of the OpenOffice.org trademarks from
Oracle.

There has been some pressure to change the name.

Apache Policy states the name of the project will be prefaced by Apache.
Does this also have to apply to the product?  ie; if the project is
called Apache OpenOffice is it possible then to still use the
trademarked name?  ie OpenOffice.org

The gift of the trademark on "OpenOffice.org" is worth a considerable
amount, does Apache have the resources to register another trademark if
the decision is made to change the name.

Does Apache have an agreement with the Apache Tribal Nation to use the
name on globally marketed consumer products. 

Cheers and thanks in advance
