Oh, let's not go down that path again, or else someone could equally point 
out that the TDF Steering Committee has not been elected yet either.  I 
see no value from debating whose election is bigger.

If you look at the list of proposed committers, you see 59 names.  Many of 
them have addresses.  Most of them are not Oracle 
employees.  The OOo community exists.  It is here.  It is signing up. 
There is no sense arguing otherwise. This doesn't mean that there are not 
other projects out there as well, good projects.   There are, and we look 
forward to collaborating with them. But collaboration needs to start from 
acknowledging that the other communities exist.
