we can drop the feather in the start center completely or let it stand

I don't think so and the reason is quite simple. The OpenOffice
community and the open office project exists much longer than the Apache
OpenOffice project. The new name is mainly to reflect our new home but
nothing else, at least not to me.

We have made more than enough attribution to Apache compared to other
projects and there related products.

I talk most often about OpenOffice and not Apache OpenOffice and that
will never change.

Just my opinion
