Subject Re: OpenOffice.org Apache Incubator Proposal
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 18:08:41 GMT
I view this proposal very critical. IMO, OpenOffice@Apache would be a dead end:

- There is an existing community over at LibreOffice. So what good
does it, to build a second community here?
- The afore mentioned community was built exactly, because the
initiators of the current proposal have been unable to hold the
community. Why should they do any better, if the code base where moved
to Apache?
- While LibreOffice could take over any ASL'ed code, the opposite
wouldn't be true. In other words, LibreOffice would have a very clear
advantage that could never be eliminated as long as the project where
ASL'ed.
