Subject Re: Apache Incubator Proposal
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 18:16:58 GMT
To me the proof point whether this proposal will be successful or not
is whether Linux distributions having already dropped support for
OpenOffice and switched to LibreOffice instead would be willing to
reverse that decision and move back to OpenOffice again now that it is
in a process to be proposed to become an Apache incubator project.
