Oracle and SUN "Today we welcome Oracle's donation of code that has previously been proprietary to the Apache Software Foundation, it is great to see key user features released in a form that can be included into LibreOffice."

It seems pretty cool that OpenOffice will now gain developers from Apache and from IBM.

Now ... if libreoffice really wants to merge the codebase, they could just relicense their stuff under a dual LGPL3 and/or Apache license, so the best of both projects can still be merged or at least so that both projects will remain compatible at a source level for a while.

After all, it was libreoffice who forked so it should be them who merge back.
