If AOO is not an end-user focused project a lot of people will leave
this community because they will be useless. People who are doing
end-user support, who are doing end-user documentation and are doing
what we call "marketing" etc.

Also people, who build binaries are obsolet. Only coders will be needed
and I don't know, whether all remained will stay under that conditions.

I don't see a great difference between that way and a retirement.

The first way might be the "Apache way", but it is definitely not the
way for and of the OpenOffice community.

Just my 2 cents.

Kind regards
