When I say "we" I mean the GNOME Project. I think the GNOME Office
hackers are definitely members of that - I don't know how the Open
Office hackers see themselves, but we're happy to have them also.

We don't have enough information yet, I don't think. Sun may be
willing to reconsider the licensing.

Let's not make any overfast decisions; I'm thinking we definitely
shouldn't decide anything until well into next year. But I'd like to
have a board meeting on this topic in the next few weeks just to get
an initial sense from John of Sun's plans and how flexible they are.
