"Oracle continues to be at the center of controversy despite
their press release stating they will continue to support and
release OpenOffice.org as an open source project. Most recently
Oracle was vilified by bloggers and the press for asking members of
The Document Foundation to resign from OpenOffice.org due to
potential conflicts of interest.
"Dave Neary, a respected GNOME and GIMP developer, suggests that
rush to judgment is not only pre-mature, but possibly incorrect. In
a recent blog post Neary stated that the resignation request was
made by long-term OpenOffice.org developers and community managers
- not by corporate Oracle. He further explained that it was a
"proposal," not a voted decision."
