Re: [steering-discuss] Re: [libreoffice-users] development & releases

Hi Dotan, *,

Are you suggesting that upstream (OOo) bugs are fixed independently in
LibreOffice? Or are you referring to LibreOffice specific bugs? For
that matter, is LibreOffice still pulling from OOo upstream? If so,
are bugs fixed in LibreOffice being submitted as patches to the OOo
bugtracker, or is it up to Oracle to come asking for them? I think
that it would be wise of LibreOffice to file the patches, and I am
willing to take that responsibility if needed.

patches were put on a issue in the past, but they were not all incorporated in the 
upstream build of OOo. Currently it is not posible to get all patches for LibreOffice 
into OOo. Oracle is asking for copyright assignment for every pice of code and the 
most free developers of LibreOffice are not willing to sign such document. Thus it is 
not posible to reintegrate patches/features from LibreOffice to OOo. It is only 
posible the other way around.
