Since the third-party stuff is already integrated into LibreOffice, it doesn't matter whether it 
passes through the Apache OpenOffice incubator or not.  You have it and you are using it the same 
way was using it.

What I think is more important is the opportunity the bits that will be under AFL 2.0 provide to 
The Document Foundation if it is desired to re-license as other than LGPL3+.

PS: My understanding from posts by Apache officials on the incubator-general discussion list is 
that Apache has submitted the license document.  It is now up to Apache to decide to accept and create an incubator podling, as they are called.  Oracle staff has said they 
will assist the podling in transferring the artifacts to Apache custody.

The problem is that OOo includes quite a bit of thirdparty stuff, none of those bein 
Apache-licensed and thus without a chance of being included in the apache-project. So very likely 
the code that hooks that code up into OOo will be dumped along with those external stuff and thus 
it is very unclear what will be covered by the grant, and what not. As far as I know, there is only 
the "intent" of Oracle to donate it unter the Apache License, but no clear statement has been made 
as to what exact sourcecode this will cover.
