Subject RE: Foundation blog posting on Apache OOo

My unsolicited advice:

There are several topics in the single announcement from ASF.  My 
recommendation is to read the paragraph that mentions TDF as independent of 
the other material.  From here, it looked like an olive branch.  It's 
unfortunate that it looks like a barbed spear to some at the other end.

I'm not sure that response is going to create much goodwill if I relay it.

I read the release as being a response to the publicity created by Team
OpenOffice, but since they are not mentioned in it and LibreOffice is (in
words spookily reminiscent of Oracle wishing TDF every success for the
future a year ago), people are reading it as aimed at them. So to be clear,
is the intent here to address Team OpenOffice?
