I've been lurking here for a while just reading and soaking up all the info
rmation that is being discussed here.  There is one topic I have not seen y
et.  Several big names have been waved as sponsors... Google, Novell and 
so on, but no comment on what that sponsorship means for LibO.  Are the s
ponsors providing financial support, or are they just saying 'We like Lib
O'?  What does this sponsorship really mean?

The page on TDF website is titled "Supporters" not "Sponsors" and the
opening sentence is "The idea behind The Document Foundation is already
supported by many organisations." This does not necessary mean financial
support, though of course it would be great if that happens too.

I suspect anyone using the word "sponsor" made a typing error.
