Oracle Asks Founders Of The Documents Foundation To Leave

“However, Oracle is not taking their move well. They want the
founders of The Documents Foundation to leave the OpenOffice.org
council. According to Oracle, their works with The Documents
Foundation and LibreOffice will conflict with that of
OpenOffice.org.

“In many FOSS projects there is usually a free exchange of codes
and ideas between the original project and the forked one. There is
however little or no competition between them. The fact that Oracle
mentions conflict of interest suggests that they see LibreOffice as
a competitor and that they want tighter control over the direction
that OpenOffice.org takes.”
