I've seen a couple of examples of:

1) A contributor contributing the same code (or similar code) to both
AOO and LO.

2) LO taking a patch from AOO and integrating it into LO.

I've also heard that LO is "rebasing" on AOO code in order to switch
their license to MPLv3..  But I have not been able to figure out what
this actually means and whether or not it involves source code.

But it is probably safe to say that there is no widespread sharing of
code between the two projects.  I have hopes that this will change in
the near future.

The addresses will map like this:

ooo-XXX@incubator.apache.org ===> XXX@openoffice.apache.org

There is a list of other migration tasks here:

http://incubator.apache.org/guides/graduation.html#transfer

I don't know if it will be necessary to resubscribe or not. But even
if the subscription information is preserved, subscribers who use
filters and rules in their mail client will need to update them.

We should probably start a wiki page for migration-related
information, so we can keep project members and observers up to date.
