And I found another couple of similarly completely uncategorized forums.

The forums at look much more promising, but are not these two products expected to diverge more and more? In my understanding LibreOffice is a new project that _started_ with OOo code but will be building separately. Or will changes made to LibreOffice be merged back into OOo? Obviously I am not a developer so I do not understand how these "branches" or "forks" work. I'm not asking to be educated here, that would be OT. Just saying that if LibreOffice is indeed a new product that will become less and less like OOo it ought to have its own "official" nice forum.

Meanwhile sure, the link to should be added prominently on the help page of the libreoffice site. Since I am not any kind of expert or web developer and have little understanding of how OS projects work, it would be silly for me to ask to be on the web team just to make one edit. I hope someone more appropriate for web team membership does that soon.


I have some doubts as to whether the two products will diverge now that Oracle has decided to end its involvement with . I suspect that at some point rather than let OOo just whither and die it will merge with The Document Foundation and the two will become essentially one. If that happens it might be a good idea to use both names, OOo could end up being the Windows version and LO the Linux and other OS version. Or something like that.
