For project reports I find it more appropriate to simply give credit, 
like "X Y organized an OpenOffice event" as opposed to "Big thanks to X 
Y for organizing an OpenOffice event". But the version now online is OK.

I'm not sure about this. It is just wording after all, nothing to change 
in the report; but Apache OpenOffice is OpenOffice and OpenOffice is 
Apache OpenOffice (and nothing else); if someone wants to speak about 
"OpenOffice and others" then "OpenOffice ecosystem" is more explicit and 
clear (even if I don't love this terminology).

Well, I agree it's time to stop talking about what to write in the 
report and to resume some of the work I had already sent here weeks ago...

They are OK. My remaining concerns are:
- Title and link: this is the "2015-Apr" report, not the March one.
- Forum is not mentioned anywhere; at least a sentence like "The 
official, volunteer-run, OpenOffice support Forums remain very popular 
with users" would be appropriate.

And thanks a lot for giving the community time to discuss the report at
