     First, I'd like that someone would change my email from
    rms@greymalkin.yi.org into rms@1407.org, please, since the previous one
    is deprecated :)

    Secondly, I strongly suggest reading the following url:

    As Bradley Kuhn kindly said at GUADE3, some FSF staff use AbiWord, so
    they may be even give us better support than we alone can.

        * Does the distribution contain a copy of the License?
          Does OEONE distribution contain a copy of the license?

        * Does it clearly state which software is covered by the License?
          Does it say anything misleading, perhaps giving the impression
          that something is covered by the License when in fact it is not?
          Does the OEONE distribution clearly state that the product is not
    GPL, or misleads into thinking other weird things?

        * Is source code included in the distribution?

        * Is a written offer for source code included with a distribution of
          just binaries?
          I think not, do they?

        * Is the available source code complete, or is it designed for
          linking in other non-free modules?
          No available source.

    There are some more things to do, however, if we do this homework
    correctly first, I believe the FSF will gladly support us, and the
    homework will help them a lot.

     A reminder to the link... http://abiword.sourceforge.net/oeone.html

    Hugs, rms
