It is Oracle's intent to provide to ASF the files needed to build OOo, taking into account licensing and ownership issues. This includes binary artifacts such as the OOo artwork and translation databases. I am following the discussions here closely, and I am collected all of the lists that are provided.

In order to execute the standard ASF Software Grant we were required to come up with an initial list of files, and so the list, which has been distributed, is exactly that - an initial list.

As previous stated [1][2], Oracle wants to provide what is needed for the continuity of the OOo project. In terms of svn history and such, that becomes more of an issue for the podling to decide, and is discussed in the podling documentation [3].

It seems entirely reasonable, though, to expect Oracle to provide a firm commitment that they will relicense any and all files in the repository that they own, including CWS. Sam, does the current commitment from Apache give that assurance, or is it something we should ask you to seek?

I will simply state again that it is my expectation that if we make reasonable requests and that if those requests are within Oracle's power to fulfill those requests, that we will obtain subsequent software grants.
