Hello all,

thank you for opening this thread. It is not in the intention of anyone
-I don't speak officially for the Foundation in this mail- to sit in
both projects. It would give a very bad signal, I think, a signal that
we either don't believe in LibO and that we want to occupy seats just
for the sake of it. So that's not going to happen, rest assured of
that: but it's not even been a month since we've gone out in public,
remember? :-) Just be patient. 

On the other hand, I and others do not tolerate being "fired" by
Oracle. Resigning is one thing, being kicked out is another one.
Resigning is a logical consequence of our actions that will actually
happen soon, being kicked out and accepting it means we acknowledge that
Oracle has the right of life and death over the OOo community. Good
thing we went to open the Document Foundation then!

... and above all their
general opinion about what Ramon said and on how to handle the
OOo/Oracle <-> LibO/TDF relation in the future.

Hello Mr. Fioretti,

It is my firm and deep belief that, given my experiences and
interactions, as limited as they may be in some cases, with all of
those _actively_ involved in the development, promotion and support
of these software packages having so much more in common with regards
to vision of purpose, as opposed to, the differences in vision of
implementation process, that it is and will be, only a small matter
of time before the groups are pursuing mutually beneficial activities
once again.
