What TDF did is basically "we can't tolerate what Sun and then Oracle
did, so we are now finally doing things as they ought to be".

I think that here there is a basic misunderstanding.

We have said that we thank Sun and Oracle for what they did so far, but
we see a brighter future for OOo under an independent organization. And
we would like to see Oracle in the same independent organization as an
equal member.

Naif. Maybe.

I can only speak for myself, but I am still supporting OOo as I have
done during the last seven years. I am currently preparing PLIO slides
for the upcoming LinuxDay, covering OOo 3.3.

I have commented about OOo with journalists, who don't see any conflict
of interest if they have to ask questions about OOo, TDF and LibO to the
same person (maybe because they know my integrity).

Of course, Oracle is free to apply corporate laws to a community, and
the community is free to develop an independent judgement based on
Oracle's behaviour.

We will never issue a negative judgement on Sun and Oracle, and we are
ready to sit around a table to discuss how to cooperate during the next

It would be nice if our emails - mine was sent on Tuesday in response to
my "resignment" decided by an Oracle employee - are answered in due time.
