Hi Manfred,

> did you check all the other (not US/UK) user ML as well?

No, I did it mostly out of curiosity. Although I speak multiple computer languages, my human
language skills are English with a little high school German over 30 years ago.

If others know ....

Agreed. Someone should write an announcement for use to disseminate.

An announcement should probably include:

- introduce AOOo (incubating)
- a promise that all bugs, user forums, and mailing lists will be migrated carefully and people
can continue as now.
- a call for developers (code and documentation) to join us on ooo-dev w/ a mention and link
to the Apache Way.

- introduce an AOOo blog so that the Community can follow our progress.
