As whole package yes, but you can ask individual contributors to put there  
code to Apache License 2.0.

How you know, the AOO Code is outdated? We maintain the code, as LO  
maintain there code. Please come with facts.

Libre Office is maybe popular at the Linux world, and even there exist  
Users who kick LO and install OpenOffice. There are big features in LO who  
simply shipped over to LO. Native SVG Import. Mac OS X 64 Bit port, and  
the Sidebar for exemple. Many of the added Features are simply buddled  

More feature dosen't mean a better product. If you add a load of new bugs  
to the software in the same time, the user will not be happy.

Apache spend more or less only the infrastructure. TDF and ASF are not  
comparebel. ASF does not found individual projects at all. Not even the  
ApacheCon is founded over ASF budget.
