While I don't know the specifics of how this bounty came about (it's been
awhile since I was on the OOo-Docs mailing list), I think it's more like
realizing you can only get so far with volunteer labor and somebody made a
donation to make this set of docs happen.

Professional developers work on open source projects all the time. I don't
think anyone at the OOo project would object if some company assigned a team
of writers to the documentation project. At the same time, considering the
amount of time I've spent working with OpenOffice.org applications that I
never paid a dime for, a time donation wouldn't seem too much of a burden.
