You got here something wrong. It's not needed to make a fork. You can do  
the whole work at Apache OpenOffice. You have only to follow the  
Development guide lines of OpenOffice. But that's not a problem I think.

The only thing that has to be done outside ASF is the founding. And you  
don't collect Money for OpenOffice itself. You collect money to develop  
some features or to fix a list of bugs. This is a small bat important  
difference. And you collect the money not as the ASF or Apache OpenOffice,  
you collect it as an individual.

The development will go the ordinary way. there is no difference between  
paid work and volunteered work.

Regards, Raphael
