Hi - continuing the top posting.

I think what Raphael is referring to is if the project should follow a pattern similar to
Apache Subversion where only source code and no binary packages are provided.

If you look at you will see what is meant. I am
not sure how that would work for us. We already have a few “packagers”, but then also
subversion is very simple compared to OpenOffice. The governance on deciding what is allowed
on a packagers page might exceed the effort in maintaining viable Windows, Mac and Ubuntu/Linux
builds. This is really the crux of “ease building”. (1)

Alternatively finding a way for a hypothetical organization to develop the application including
security issues. The question would be who is that organization and would they be doing Apache
OpenOffice or ${OfficeSuite} powered by Apache OpenOffice?
