So to summarize:

- TeamOOo e.V: Association of the Hamburg engineers (primarily) --- > OOo
- FroDe.V, formerly OOoDe.V: users/community association in Germany
channelling funds under two separate accounts for LibreOffice and
OpenOffice, and also acting as the intermediary legal entity on behalf of
TDF.

I hope everything's a bit clearer.

Best,

Charles.
