That's true, Rene is free to create a NEW application, using resources.

But so far, rename everything LibreOffice in the files concerning is not fair. As I wrote, "apt-get install" should lead to "no longer maintained", or something  
like that, but NOT lead to "replaced by LibreOffice or whatever".

IMHO, the right decision could have been :

- clone source files (all the Debian bazaar , like  
Control and so on files)
- create / declare libreoffice as a NEW application in Debian repos
- put in "unmaintained" or whatever similar status.

That's just a personal opinion, but I hope I was clear. If not  
please  ask me and I'll reformulate.

Nobody told he didn't and nobody will contest. Since years Rene does  
a great work for and now LibreOffice.
