The Go-oo homepage also says "Going forward, the Go-oo project will be
discontinued in favor of LibreOffice." Does that mean that LibreOffice
is driven by Novell too?

I wouldn't put in that simple words. Actually, LibreOffice is open to any
developer, individual or company that whishes to contribute to our code and
endeavour. On the TDF announcement we invited Oracle to join us and
suggested them to offer the brand OpenOffice to TDF (later this was politely
declined by Oracle).

LibreOffice has many contributions of Novell engineers, as well as Oracle
engineers too. But is is not an Novell product nor TDF is a Novell shop. The
Next Decade Manifesto says a lot on our purpose and TDF is better described
in this page:

Please help us not to make the same mistake as did.

Kind regards

Thank you, Olivier.

I clicked on the "list of events" link on There are several events listed
for North America. Would TDF consider being at LinuxFest Northwest in
Bellingham, 4/30 & 5/1? There will be an official call for papers in
early January, but people can register at
LFNW is a true open source expo, free admission, completely run by of the longest running Fests in the US.

If there are LibOers in the Pacific NW, please contact me off-list if
you'd like to help put together a LibreOffice track. We are looking
for presentations for people who are new to FOSS.
