When you this was the OOo project isn't more appropriate to say it was
the project of http://www.ooodev.org/ ?
OOoDeV has been part of the OOo community, and many projects that needed
legal backing have been done with OOoDeV. The PrOOo-Box has been one of
them, but it is a community project, not only an OOoDeV project. Not
everyone involved is an OOoDeV member, as far as I know.
On more then a few occasions in exchanges at OOo it was made clear to me
that the organizations behind the websites was not OO.o - but was
affiliated with it, loosely.
Will that site be changing it's name then?
OOoDeV? Well, I guess so, but formally, we have to file a request to our
members meeting, with a change of the name and a change of the policies
(as they contain the name OOoDeV). This will take a while, until it is
voted on and approved, but my personal opinion is that it might happen.
Actually let me be more precise - in reading the front page of that site
the other day it seemed to say that ooodev.org would be renaming in
order to become the new holder of the TDF entity, legally speaking. Is
that an accurate reading of the text there - I used a translation tool
so it would not surprise me if I am somehow mistaken.
OOoDeV is the interim legal entity, holding assets for TDF, until TDF is
established as a legal entity itself.
ps - one other item I notice that ooodev.org links over to
Not related to us, don't know what they intend in terms of rebranding.
