You'll need to ask someone in LO, probably Charles Schutz.  He is the
one making accusations  My attempts to fathom what he is talking about
have failed.

In terms of facts:

1) There is a Program Committee for organizing Plugfests.  They do
their work on this mailing list:
https://open.nlnet.nl/mailman/listinfo/plugtest-organisers

2) No one from LibreOffice has requested to use the term "ODF
Plugfest" on this mailing list.

3) No one from LibreOffice has sent a proposal to hold a Plugfest to this list.

4) No one (to my knowledge) from IBM has opposed or even given an
opinion on TDF hosting a Plugfest.

You can review the complete thread here and correlate it to Charle's
assertions on the LO marketing list:
