IBM "After most of the developers and Linux distributions deserted them for LibreOffice, Oracle donated OpenOffice.org to the Apache Software Foundation. IBM has surprisingly thrown its weight behind OpenOffice.org in the OpenOffice.org vs LibreOffice fight. Tomorrow IBM will announce the donation of the source code of their free office suite - IBM Lotus Symphony - to the Apache OpenOffice.org."

IBM has a long history of working with the Apache Software Foundation, so it shouldn't be surprising that they would choose to contrib the code base to the project under their control rather than libreoffice.
