I have a question about licences and copyright. As many of you know,
contributing code to the core of OpenOffice.org requires that one
signs the Oracle Contributor Agreement  (which is identical to the
Sun Contributor Agreement). Extensions are exempt from this .
So, IANAL, I'm not Oracle, this is not a TDF official statement, don't
put your cat in the microwave, etc, etc....
1. Now imagine that I contribute code to LibreOffice and the
contribution is accepted. Is it then still acceptable (from a
copyright point of view) to sign the Oracle Contributor Agreement and
submit the same code to OpenOffice.org?
2. Conversely, if I sign the Oracle Contributor Agreement and submit
code (and it gets accepted, otherwise the copyright reverts to me),
can I then still submit the same code to LibreOffice or would that
cause problems for LibreOffice (because Oracle now shares copyright
of the code I submitted)?
Yes. Actually that's what we do when we "pull" the OOo codebase over to
2.b. Can I contribute the code to LibreOffice while the acceptance of
my patch to OpenOffice.org is still pending?
