People seems to overlook the real motives behind the new name. The new name is due to conflicts between the KOffice team, so Calligra is mostly a fork of KOffice.


Well, since Calligra Office takes with it all of the code and all but one of the former maintainers (only the former Kword maintainer is not part of calligra Office), then it follows that Calligra Office is not the fork ... rather anything else is the fork.
