It seems that you don't need an explicit permission for the use of
OpenOffice you would like to make: Apache OpenOffice is free software,
distributed under the Apache License, version 2.
I believe you will conclude that the license terms are enough and that
you don't need an explicit permission beyond it. But if you have doubts
feel free to contact us again. Use the dev list (I'm moving other lists
to BCC to avoid useless traffic) or contact the OpenOffice PMC directly
as instructed on this page: http://openoffice.apache.org/trademarks.html
