OK, counter-point to the other thread... let's talk specifically about what

What has to happen next?  What is the most important thing/things we could

How can we attract more developers?  How do we counter the FUD that is
already being promulgated in response to the "retirement" discussion?

The "other thread" is actually liberating. Let's go public with the risk that 
AOO will be shut down, despite the wishes and best efforts of its remaining developers.

I would like to see every possible medium used to present one message: "AOO is at 
serious risk of dying, unless we get more volunteer developers, especially C++ 

I know we need other skills as well, but I don't want to dilute or complicate 
that message.

I would like a special mailing list, just for 
signing up and organizing new developers. No need for them to start with dev@, 
especially the less experienced developers. Just send an e-mail to recruitment@

The message should go out every way it can:
OpenOffice forums
Press release

We should also strengthen the current download page appeal for developers to 
state the risk of shut down.
