Martin, from Oracle, was linking to this article:
Well, a person from Oracle referred to that article ... so they might
also know where they put that statement. :-)
It would be interesting to get a copy of the "comment".

Indeed :-) But then we have to ask Graham, whether he is so kind to tell
us where to find Martin's mail.

The article only states "Oracle said it was investing substantial resources in

“With more than 100 million users, we believe is the most advanced, most feature-rich open-source implementation and will strongly encourage the OpenOffice community to continue to contribute through,” the enterprise software and hardware giant said in a statement." With no name or reference to where the statement can be see.

It has already been cited by Kürti on this list:
A repeat of the "news article".

Aha. But what you mean? :-)

Just what I said, the message only repeats the same "statement". Again no name or reference to where the full "statement" can be found.

Who made the statement? What is their position at Oracle? Anyone can make a statement but how much weight does that statement carry?

If you take it a face value then there is no way that Oracle is going to hand over the trademark or anything else to the community that has helped build it. Do they actually think that "they" did all the work to get that 100 million users? Yet there are some that hold to the idea.
