Is a office-programming-projekt under Apache Licence not a free project?

Sorry, but my interest is the original (= Openoffice) and no third party project.

I do not think the ASF would allow a crowd funding campaign for AOO <TM> and a crowd
funding campaign war Raphaels suggestion.

Yes, for a third party project ... for that I have no interest.

My summary is:
I am absolutely incomprehensible why in an Apache project always to point to the way out of
a third party project, instead of thinking about developing own rules further.

If we continue to do so, we will weaken the "OpenOffice" brand, although we should strengthen
this brand.
