Hi Jim,

It's possible, sure, but if the ASF were to do this, then I
would expect that they/we would spent quite a bit of time
determining the "best" place for it... Not saying that it's
not TDF, but who knows... Not a slam against TDF at all,
just an honest statement that we don't know where it would

I see no problem in that statement, as it is just what you say: honest.

But a mail before you wrote:
... There are people who see TDF's resistance to working with the ASF ...

I do not see, that this resistance really exists for two reasons:

It is up to the individuals to bring a project forward, so the TDF as abstract entity would do very abstract work only. If you have a look at the recent discussions, you may notice that many TDF members already gave a lot of input and helped Apache to make a good decision. I personally would consider this as "working together" (at least as a first step).

I hope I'm allowed to be as honest as you are. I don't feel that ASF is "the best place" for the OOo trademark and source code. But I still consider Apache as "a good place" - so imho we are at a quite even level (unless you want to tell that TDF would be a really "bad" place for the OOo assets ;) ).



(PS.: same rule here as at the Apache lists: I'm speaking as individual - not as "TDF")
