It is not surprising to me. Until the LibreOffice you was 100% committed
to Now, what is your occupation? Are you a contributor, or LibreOffice or both of them?. If somebody
ask you what offer to him as a office suite what will you tell to him?
It is somehow a split brain situation. and LibreOffice
are competitor products. is more one-company ruled,
LibreOffice is more free. Do not forget that the development supported
by big companies plus several freelancer contributor. The companies have
to sell to make success, now Oracle is opponent such companies like
Novell and Red Hat. Oracle  takes one's own course they are not
interested in more freedom.  That is all. That is why it seems a logical
step. However I dislike not to work together.

Actually, the community council is just the top of the iceberg.

I have been "resigned" from my role as budget approver (of a community
owned budget made by donations) by an Oracle employee advocating that he
is in charge of that community budget.

The same has happened to Cor Nouws, while Charles Schulz has been
"resigned" from NLC lead and Florian Effenberger from Marketing lead by
another Oracle employee, who has replaced both.
