I know talking about Apache is not one of our main priorities.
But I still wanted to share the news about Lotus Symphony and OpenOffice
merging back after their fork.

What real impact, if any, will this have on LibreOffice?
Apache OpenOffice 4.0 has no planned release date.

What can LibreOffice gain from this news?
As far as I know, LO could take up the symphony code either directly
or through Apache.

Yes, the Apache license is less restrictive, so AOO code can be integrated into LO, but not the other way around unless the contributing author in LO grants the more permissive license to AOO.

I think that numerous bug fixes from Symphony have already been integrated into AOO, many of these related to DOCX import if I remember correctly.
