It's rather full of mistakes and misinterpretations.

For example "spell-checking has had to be replaced due to the loss of  
hunspell", it's plainly wrong.

While "A curious side effect of this process is that community developers  
who licensed their code under the LGPL but assigned their copyright to Sun  
Microsystems, now find their code being re-licensed, against their will,  
to the Apache licence, which may mean the later absorption of the software  
in proprietary offerings." is a not-well-informed and historically wrong  
interpretation, since OpenOffice.org code was for a long period released  
under the Sun Industry Standard Source License (SISSL) and large part of  
his code included into proprietary products.

IMO, corrections to text should be asked.
