I don't like "as a fork of OOo", and I would rather prefer "based on OOo source code". Of course, the concept of the fork is correct, but as the reality is that every flavour of the legacy StarOffice source code is now a fork (AOOo is more of a fork than LibreOffice) I would avoid to label LibreOffice as such.


Thanks for your comment. I have changed the paragraph to:
"LibreOffice (http://www.libreoffice.org/) is a free and open-source office suite based on the OpenOffice.org source code. It is a community-driven project of The Document Foundation. The Document Foundation was formed in September 2010 and has released several new versions of LibreOffice since that time. New code in LibreOffice is developed under a double license: GNU Lesser General Public License Version 3 (LGPLv3) and the Mozilla Public License (MPL)."

Best regards,

Christophe
