Great to see you do so!  We (ASF) have a decision to make here,
and input from you (ODF and OOO folks) is exactly what we need.

However, I'm getting mixed signals here: your blog piece at
http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2011/06/01/statement-about-oracles-move-to-donate-openoffice-org-assets-to-the-apache-foundation/
seems to welcome this prospective development,
while today's post gives a contrary impression.

My knowledge of the Office scene and split is minimal,
and I expect many Apache folks could say the same.
My best impression comes from Michael Meeks's talk at FOSDEM 
which came as no surprise and left me with the impression
that ODF's goals are broadly the same as ASF's:
an inclusive community of equals.

Hypothetically if this donation had happened before the
OOO/ODF split, can I assume that you would you have regarded it 
as a solution to the underlying problems and never have split?
