hmmm - that is assuming that the two separate projects will maintain
enough common code base that shared extensions are possible - that is a
requirement that I for one would not want to see enforced. The fact that
we can share extensions today is, IMO, a remnant of a past history and
should not dictate decisions for going forward - so I would not be in
favor our hosting Apache branded extensions on a
TDF/LibreOffice service, nor would I be in favor or seeing
TDF/Libreoffice continue to point back to Apache for any
future end user services.
As in past some extensions required some special version of OOo, in
future they may require a special version of LO or only LO or only AOOo
at all. It's more testing but surely can be documented and handeled.
Besides that I dont't expect LO to refurbish the API on a
down-to-the-foundation level in the next years.
There is a solution for that Problem: standardization of the API for
example under the roof of OASIS.

That doesn't necessarily mean, LibreOffice and will have
the same API but a practical common set.

Extensions could notice, whether they use only (parts of) the standard set.


Isn't this going to put the API into a cast? (for the good and for the bad)
