Hi Raphael,

does that make sense? de-qa seems dead (last msg in apr) and de-dev dies slowly (current issue
is a long thread about OOo vs LO).

I followed LO and thought about joining the TDF but in my summary their move was politically
motivated. I'm not interested in joining historical bashing but I am looking forward in the
evolution of OOo. It's a pity OOo as a project is jeopardized by a struggle about license
agreements but I can live with Apache and will support this fork. Of course I would welcome
if both projects would merge.

Speaking from a companies point of view: You cannot change your operating environment by every
development movement - even if you are strong supporter of open source. That will drive your
users crazy and doubles your effort and costs. Office software is based on long-term considerations.

Enough with politics, please.
