The Document Foundation celebrates the 10th anniversary of the OOo community looking at the next 

The Internet, October 13, 2010 - Ten years ago, the then fledgling community 
provided the first public access to the StarOffice source code donated by Sun Microsystems. Today, 
The Document Foundation - a group based on some of those early pioneers - is launching a new 
challenge based on the Next Decade Manifesto.

The Next Decade Manifesto has been published at

"Looking back at the first ten years of the OOo community, it is amazing to see what we have achieved thanks to 
the commitment of thousands of volunteers in every part of the world", says André Schnabel, a long time member of 
the group. "Today, though, we are concentrating on our next objective: grow the software into the next decade as 
an independent community, around the LibreOffice brand".

The Document Foundation has the mission to facilitate the evolution of the OOo Community into a new 
open, independent, and meritocratic organization within the next few months. An independent 
Foundation is a better match to the values of contributors, users and supporters, and will enable a 
more effective, efficient, transparent, and inclusive Community. TDF will protect past investments 
by building on the achievements of the first decade, encourage wide participation in the Community, 
and co-ordinate activity across the Community.
