Subject RE: OpenOffice & LibreOffice
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2011 02:15:36 GMT
In support of Sam's point here, I add that OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice.org already provide
the required ALv2 notices in their listings of third-party dependencies.  The list is installed
as part of every install of one of the distributions.  I even included a copy of one of the
latest LibreOffice ones in an earlier post.  So folks curious about this should satisfy themselves
that the LibreOffice office team already knows how to handle this.
