By naming some products, but not others, we're being arbitrarily
restrictive.  But listing the actual product under whose aegis this
forum is hosted is merely being accurate.  Whether the forums are
restrictive or not will depend on the behavior of forum participants
to questions from users of products other than Apache OpenOffice.  As
stated before, I hoping we'll be helpful where we can, and refer users
to the respective projects otherwise.

I'd be equally happy with a neutral: "User community support forum for
Apache and related products".
