Oracle is donating OpenOffice.org to Apache's Incubator: "Oracle had announced earlier this year that it would be passing the torch to the community, but failed to provide any specifics about the ultimate destination of OpenOffice.org. Now we know where it's going — and it's hard to argue with Apache as a reliable body to take up OpenOffice.org. However, one wonders how this will affect the fork of OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice, which has been gathering steam."

Various comments on the announcement: Document Foundation, Michael Meeks, Rob Weir, Bob Sutor and Bradley Kuhn.
