The Apache Software Foundation has felt the need to put out a
on the status of OpenOffice.org as an Apache project.
"As with many highly-visible products, there has been speculation and
conjecture about the future of OpenOffice.org at Apache. More recently,
destructive statements have been published by both members of the greater
FOSS community and former contributors to the original OpenOffice.org
product, suggesting that the project has failed during the 18 weeks since
its acceptance into the Apache Incubator. Whilst the ASF operates in the
open - our code and project mailing lists are publicly accessible - ASF
governance permits for projects to make information and code freely
available when the project deems them ready to be released. Apache
OpenOffice.org is not at risk.
