Review of BlackDuck OpenHub

Dave Fisher
Hi -

I’m currently doing a review of OpenOffice trademarks by repeating the Suitable Name Search.


Please have a look as I think we should make some changes.

Regards,
Dave

There are, rounded off, 430 projects listed there.

Based upon looking at about a quarter of the pages, it looks like
roughly:
* 10% are specifically related to OOo l10n & i18n projects;
* 20% are language specific libraries to utilize OOo documents;
* 20% are extensions for OOo, AOo, EO, and LibO;
* 50% are backoffice programs that can either import or edit OOo documents;
* a third of the projects are obsolete/abandoned;

> Please have a look as I think we should make some changes.

* Are there any listings that you have specific concerns about;

* Break this up into smaller tasks.
I can't look at all 430, but I could look at between half a dozen and a
dozen - with very good odds that somebody else that can look at a dozen
will pick the same dozen I pick.

Hi -

Sorry, I was not clear. We should police our own project as it is listed as Java and not updated recently. Why is that?

Regards,
Dave

The page https://www.openhub.net/p/openoffice is full of inaccuracies
and shows that they are not even able to maintain data: they report our
latest commit as 7 months ago and, in small, they write that their bots
last checked 7 months ago. Can we simply ask to be delisted?

If we can't... well, it is so broken that, had I not known this was a
page about OpenOffice, I wouldn't have guessed this was OpenOffice. So
yes we should make "some" changes, and probably a lot of them!

Regards,
   Andrea.

I saw it as a request to look for trademark/copyright violations.
(One of my other projects is trying to determine who the de juro and de
facto copyright owner of about 100 books, written by the same person,
is. Paraphrasing who we thought the copyright owner was: "My dad did not
steal copyright ownership of that material. He did steal copyright
ownership of this material." So naturally, my head is in
trademark/copyright issues.)

FWIW, there were a couple of projects that, at first glance, would
warrant investigation as trademark/copyright violations.

I didn't realize that
https://www.openhub.net/p?query=openoffice&sort=users was a sub-page.
Part of that is because I'm not familiar with OpenHub, and part of that
was that it looked more like a list of what can interact with OOo, than
a list of OOo components.

Please send those links to private@openoffice so that we can review without accusation and determine priority.

Thanks for looking.

Dave
