I think Oracle have decided they are competing with LibreOffice but so far we 
seem to be co-operating with them.  It would be wise for us to
1.  Beat them to the finish line.  
2.  Keep aware of what they are doing, odd stats can help sometimes
3.  Keep going the way we have been, rapid growth and development in 
infra-structure and support along with excellent coding development
4.  Keep co-operating as long as they let us.

After initial release we wil, of course, keep developing in all areas so rushing 
final release and getting it out there wouldn't hurt us.  We don't have to worry 
about corporate clients right now but they do.  So a 2nd release in another 
couple of months wouldn't hurt us but it's almost unthinkable for them.

What I have been seeing in these threads lead me to believe
that the people are slower to put out a RC version, but also
may wait between RC version for more of the work to be done
Actually I believe that the 3.3 release process should not be taken as a
reference at all, but LibreOffice is definitely not slower, it's faster;
it merely started the RC phase later. Here are the relevant RC dates:

2010-11-29 RC7
2010-12-05 LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC1
2010-12-17 RC8
2010-12-23 LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC2
2011-01-13 LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC3
2011-01-14 RC9
2011-01-20 LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC4
2011-01-21 RC10

so the average lifespan of a Release Candidate in this period was 18
days for and 15 days for LibreOffice. Then I should
repeat that the 3.3 release process was definitely not standard on
either side, so a comparison like this one will make more sense in
future releases.


What I wanted to imply, was that to me LibreO people are doing a
good job and not rushing a RC out when it is not ready.  LibreO RC4
seems better than OOo's RC10.  Might be me, but that is my opinion.
I have seen "show stoppers" with OOo's RCs but not one with LibreO
so far in its RC2, RC3, RC4.  So I have no problem running/using LibreO
RC3 or 4 while I rarely will use an OOo RC anymore.
