Apache OpenOffice *(EARLY DRAFT)*

Apache OpenOffice is an open-source, office-document productivity
suite providing six productivity applications based around the
OpenDocument Format (ODF). OpenOffice is released on multiple
platforms and in dozens of languages.

Issues for Board Awareness

* Veto discussion, uncertainties about the policy, now clarified after
an articulated discussion on the members list; this will reduce the
risk of similar discussions to happen again in future.
* Some resources (Forum, MWiki, Buildbots, new Pootle) are very important
for the project. We ask the Board to consider providing Infra with the
needed resources.

Community Development/Outreach Progress

* New committers/PMC members: 
New committers: Samer Mansour, 2013-03-21.

* Infrastructure:
MWiki upgrade, logo refresh, new localization process, orientation modules for new volunteers.
 
* Blogs calling for new developer, documentation, QA volunteers have proved successful

* Events report: FOSDEM, ApacheCon NA in Portland

* End User Support: Community support forums remain popular with users.
The mailing lists for user support, localization, QA and marketing
are quite active. As Apache OpenOffice is a client product, we
continue to investigate ways to direct users to appropriate support
venues. The developer list, ooo-dev, remains very active.


Product/Project Development Progress

* New Release Schedule: The next OpenOffice release will be labeled 4.0. Plans are to release
in June, 2013.  

* New ports, languages and other distribution channels:
** The new release  in June will be provided in many more native languages. New volunteers
have come forth to assist with this effort.
** Build work has started for reinstating OpenOffice into Linux repositories, currently Fedora
at this time.

* Update Release: The project released an update to version 3.4.1 in late January,
to include 8 new language translations made available by volunteers. 

* Product/Project Development: Work is beginning on a Strategic Plan for the project. The
plan will likely be sub-divided into various components : Web/Wiki ,User Support, Documentation,
Project: General, Project: Writer, Project: Calc, Project:Base, etc.
We anticipate this will be a rather lengthy process involving both volunteers and our end
users.
