 And IBM  will *directly *contribute to the Apache "new" project!

See: http://www-03.ibm.com/press/us/en/pressrelease/34638.wss


All it says: " . As part of today's news, IBM will contribute staff
resources to collaborate with the Apache community during the project's
incubation period to further the Open Document Format standard.   "

Great joy ?


Well, it's more than what IBM had previously stated, that was *nothing*. :-)

I'm not a fan of *two* communities and *two *foundations that work on a more
or less modified OOo code base.

However, having all Oracle OOo assets under the ownership (or other
transient agreement) of another open source foundation, it's better than let
a brand like "OpenOffice.org" die in Oracle copyright/brands portfolio.
