“As with many highly-visible products, there has been
speculation and conjecture about the future of OpenOffice.org at
Apache. More recently, destructive statements have been published
by both members of the greater FOSS community and former
contributors to the original OpenOffice.org product, suggesting
that the project has failed during the 18 weeks since its
acceptance into the Apache Incubator.
Whilst the ASF operates in the open –our code and project
mailing lists are publicly accessible– ASF governance permits
for projects to make information and code freely available when the
project deems them ready to be released. Apache OpenOffice.org is
not at risk.
