Articles are here: http://www.frodev.org/satzung
The press statement on their home page http://www.frodev.org/ explains more
succinctly (Google Translated):
"The nonprofit organization OpenOffice.org Germany (OOoDeV) today announced
it will continue to support all the free office suites. This includes the
Document maintained by the Foundation libre office, all other Office
programs that are available as free software and build on open document
formats.

 For this reason, a broad membership base of almost 75% approved the name
change to "Free Office of Germany" (FrODeV)."

The donations page http://www.frodev.org/spenden also clarifies:

"For donations in support of The Document Foundation, we have set up a
separate account. Information, see
http://challenge.documentfoundation.org/spenden/<http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=en&ie=UTF8&langpair=auto%7Cen&rurl=translate.google.com&tbb=1&twu=1&u=http://challenge.documentfoundation.org/spenden/&usg=ALkJrhiB6QV2iuNG_NwQIUugQr3ln4tU1A>."

As far as I can determine, this is all unrelated to Team OpenOffice.org eV,
but all the people I could ask about it are obviously asleep (like I should
be).
