Oracle announced that it is going to put a lot of effort in now.
Suppose this will happen: How do you plan to make use of Oracles
improvements without being forced to obeying to Oracles will and roadmap? I
mean if LO introduces many innovations and improvements, keeping in sync
with the codebase and being able to merge Oracles improvements
without a huge porting effort will be a hard job.

I think the answer gonna be interesting :)

I think at this point, it is pretty obvious that Oracle has not shown any intention of taking part in this project and we should not expect it to be part of this any more. Our initial expectations were optimistic, but we should no longer expect them but feel "pleasantly surprised" if they decide in the future to join us. Just as "pleasantly surprised" if the decide in the future to release the trademarked "" name. They will be another organization just like any other helping out with LibreOffice. Their hold on the community and the namebrand is no longer an issue. I think we are passed that now.
