The seeds of that fork were germinated in the Go-Oo project, which

Hi Allen - will that story never die? The creation of the TDF and
LibreOffice was a movement far above and beyond Go-Oo. It just
happened to assimilate that code (and much more).
Also, if you are going to talk about a split in the community, you
should mention that TdF and LibreOffice were created in secret,
without any public discussions or community input.
Factually incorrect. Large parts of the community were involved
setting up the idea - but you don't discuss e.g. trademark issues on
a public list, if you want to stand a chance actually obtaining it.
What's more, and pointed out in this very thread - TDF is still in
the process of being fully established, and *all* things, like
bylaws, location etc. were available for discussion on public lists.
