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."

Will the Document Foundation be able to get some code from them and introduce it to LibreOffice?

That'd be indeed a great thing!

Yes, LibreOffice can use code from OpenOffice.org and from Lotus Symphony now.
