[tdf-discuss] Re: Oracle Contributor Agreement and LibreOffice contributions

Hi Phil,


Nonetheless, saying "it's better for us if you don't submit your
patches to OOo" is kind of like saying "Lets hope OOo don't spot this
bug/issue". It's ethically dubious. If this is the official approach,
then why not just make a clean break with OOo and not even try to
merge in any future OOo code changes with the LO code?

At a wild guess, because there are not enough devs in the LibO project
to fix all the bugs in the current OOo code and develop new features at
the same time ? There is always hope that some of those rather annoying
bugs that seem rather hard to fix or obscure to determine might actually
get sorted out by the OOo project ;-) Look at Base for example...and I'm
just guessing.

Alex
