:-)  I just want to make clear that, listening to both sides of this issue, it is very easy
(on both sides) for people to use language that is unintentionally inflammatory and then treat
the other party as at fault when they react to it...

This isn't a given. By the time AOOo makes an end-user release, there are likely to be substantial
differences and a shared  add-ons repo would probably need to distinguish strongly between
the two projects. Still worth considering though, I agree.

TDF won't host closed extensions though, so the combined (TDF + Apache) repo would still hold
less than the current repo.

Maybe this is a compromise solution for the security list too?  make it
and point the MX at a TDF server?
