Thanks for the post: I've been trying to follow this saga and sort some of
it out, even having subscribed to TDF and LibreO groups. I have a lot of
questions that only seem to have the vaguest of answers available but I've
refrained from asking the questions yet because there's a lot of dust to
settle out from the looks of the TDF and Libre groups. The snip below is
from ZDNet and seems to at least intimate that Oracle is going to pull OOo
completely in under its own wing. I've seen rumblings of the same thing at
Oracle but nothing, including this SDNet snip have any "dependable" data.
I'm not even sure, for instance, whether the CMS they mention is about the
apps or about their own website.
Would anyone care to comment/elaborate on what the architecture/layout of
these programs are and who is working on what? Blankenhorn isn't the best
journalist on the planet by a long shot.
