Even when the SVN log no longer shows the old contributions, I think 
I've updated the data last before the shutdown in April 2011.

The page shows 2011-11-15 which seem correct to me.

Everybody who has contributed (I don't know of a more precise 
explanation) to the project and wanted to see her/his name in the list.

We haven't done any separation when the transition was done from Sun to 
Oracle or when TDF/LO has started. So, we shouldn't begin with any splitup.

The phrase in the credit dialog in AOO has changed already to mention 
Apache. On the webpage there is nothing mentioned about Sun.
