What can the Apache Foundation provide to OpenOffice?

A formal, legal foundation. The ASF is a recognized 501(c)3, non-
profit public charity. It is a legal incorporation, which has been
in existence since 1999. It is, as you say, a foundation with lots
of projects, in fact, most of the top 10 FOSS projects are ASF ones.
It has a proven track record, and a set governance and organizational
structure that is recognized and emulated within the FOSS and
non-FOSS (eg: government, health-care, etc) communities.

Are you proposing that TDF could be the copyleft-preferring subsidiary of Apache, Jim?
