[tdf-discuss] Re: Oracle contributes OOo Code to Apache Software Foundation'sIncubator

As a user I wouldn't be happy IF the devs split up between two projects.
The way I see it is IBM and maybe some Oracle devs will work on OOo and
everybody else will work on LO...
The good part (besides the Apache license which allows LO to use what
code will be openly contributed to OOo) is that IBM will continue to
ODF, which badly needs it.
I find it a little absurd that the people behind a file format that has
under development for years haven't implemented font embedding... Of
fonts are not important for serious business companies :)

The LO folk left the OOo group because OOo was, in their opinion, going to
be over-controlled (by Oracle). Now that this is no longer true, the LO folk
don't have a case and should return to the fold. So, why don't the LO folk
do a deal with Apache, combine the best bits of OOo with LO to get back to a
single "product" and form jointly with the Apache folk an "LO Foundation".
It seems completely crazy to have two sets of developers and two sets of
code. All that does is sow FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) in the minds of
Oh, and by the way, get rid of the asinine name "LibreOffice" which half the
world can't pronounce and which three quarters of the world doesn't
understand the meaning of.
