It will be interesting to see how this works out & how TDF will work
with ASF.


Fascinating, NoOp - wheels within wheels ! Thanks for posting this !...

TDF's Statement:
<http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2011/06/01/statement-about-oracles-move-to-donate-openoffice-org-assets-to-the-apache-foundation/>

TDF's statement included :

"Today we welcome Oracle’s donation of code that has previously been
proprietary to the Apache Software Foundation, it is great to see key
user features released in a form that can be included into LibreOffice."

Since when is OOo proprietary?


There are probably some proprietary components that were added to the
StarOffice product,
and did not make it to OpenOffice.org.

I would have preferred the above statement to have two commas placed
in there, as in

"Today we welcome Oracle’s donation of code, that has previously been
proprietary, to the Apache Software Foundation. It is great to see key
user features released in a form that can be included into
LibreOffice."
