Yes, but in the case of OpenOffice we reinterpret some of the 
assumptions in the policy: the policy (as it is written) implies for 
simplicity that "(people active in the) community" = "dev list" and that 
"testers" = "developers".

But "developers", as already clarified on board list discussions, should 
not be interpreted strictly. It's more like "the project community" (so, 
OpenOffice has a dedicated QA mailing list for testers; and those 
testers are not developers, strictly speaking, and in many cases they 
are not even subscribed to the dev list; but still they are the main 
target public of our snapshots builds).

So this could be the occasion to replace "developer community" by 
"project community", since that's what is meant there. Of course, the 
current wording can stay too, and OpenOffice will continue to interpret 
it as it does currently.
