Please read this note in its entirety. It contains important
information related to this mailing list, its migration to the Apache
Software Foundation, and the steps you must take to ensure continuous
access to the list.
As you may have heard, Oracle contributed the OpenOffice.org (OOo)
code to Apache in June. All new projects at Apache start in the
"Incubator", a special part of Apache where new projects ("Podlings")
and their communities are given special attention by Apache "mentors"
as they learn about Apache, ensure that the source code meets Apache's
license requirements, and work toward their initial Apache release.
In parallel with the coding efforts needed before we can publish
Apache OpenOffice.org 3.4.0, the Apache OpenOffice.org community,
working with the Apache Infrastructure team, is migrating the many
legacy OOo websites and other online services formerly hosted by
Sun/Oracle onto Apache servers. This has been a huge effort and we are
showing good progress in many areas.
You can read more about the current status of the migration effort on
this wiki page:
