Sorry, no intention at all to create FUD. The "inaccurate or unclear"
sentence is still there at
http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2011/06/01/statement-about-oracles-move-to-donate-openoffice-org-assets-to-the-apache-foundation/
"we welcome Oracle’s donation of code that has previously been
proprietary" and a similar sentence is at
http://ebb.org/bkuhn/blog/2011/06/01/open-office.html
"according to TDF, some OpenOffice.org code that had previously been
proprietary is coming with the Apache-2.0-licensed code dump. This alone
may make it all worthwhile".

Comment #7 on the first blog post is a request for clarification signed
by me and ignored. I opened a thread on TDF-discuss where other people
commented in and it didn't result in a clarification or correction.

So, while I totally believe the error was made in good faith, I really
cannot believe I can be accused of creating FUD: the statements are
there, they ARE inaccurate or unclear and nobody took care of clarifying
them.

I hope I've now given all details you need, but I repeat I've totally no
intention to create or spread FUD (and I know the same holds for you),
so if you need more clarifications just ask.

Regards,
  Andrea.
