Seems to me the main issue is the license. Permissive Apache or Copyleft.
Those who want to be associated with permissive licensed code will come to
Apache, those that want a copyleft license will go to TDF. Those that don't
care will contribute to both or work with the community they like the best
:-). Since it seems unlikely that those that feel strongly about it will be
moved, the crux is whether either, both or neither code base gets sufficient
support to sustain its maintenance and development. Only time will tell and
only time will tell to what extent the code will diverge if both projects
prove viable. So what further debate is to be had? Is it not just a matter
of seeing how many committers sign up to make Apache OOo viable?
