Regardless of what prompted the discussion here, a specific blog post 
about what the Symphony contribution specifically has meant for 
OpenOffice would probably be very informative for our users.

It would also be a nice way to show that formerly proprietary code was 
incorporated in OpenOffice and is now available to other products that 
can integrate it (and actually, in a few cases, probably already did).

Of course, no need to post it today, and especially no need to post it 
with the aim of refuting misleading claims... I'm just saying that the 
discussion here suggested that the Symphony contribution in itself is 
worth to be properly acknowledged and get exposure.
