I seem to be really missing something in all this talk about the transfer of OOo.
and we really have work to do on our next versions, believe me, talking/reading is really time consuming

1: What would TDF do with the code? At this point in time LibO is way ahead of OOo in features and code clean up, from the patches flying in the dev list.

We don't have the code

2: What would TDF do with the name and trademarks?
We don't have the name and the trademark

3: Would they rename LibreOffice to If so why, since LibreOffice has spread like it has?
Our name is LibreOffice.

4: Why is TDF trying so hard to block the proposal with ASF? I guess answers to the above will answer this one.
How can we block a proposal that doesn't exist for us?
Please, the proposal is made to the Apache Software Foundation by Oracle with IBM benediction, ask them
1. What they would do with the code
2. What they would do with the name
3. Would they rename their product LibreOffice :p
4. Well, from what I can read on the lists, it's not us blocking anything.
Kind regards
