It is a total shame that they are doing this.  What next are they going to
request all that are connected to the LibreOffice community that to stop
being part of the OOo community?  Those that are working on the
Documentation project can not be connected to the LibO documentation
project?  What about the Distribution Project members?  Can't offer both?
 What about the user support from the community members, not be allowed on
mailing list for both projects.

To a degree I think is the wrong issue, the who cares who lead what. The big
issue is if the community is breaking apart. Are there people willing to go
to TDF, and is there people that will remain in OOo no matter what. That is
the big concern in my opinion. It seems more than title fighting, we should
be more concern of what will be the bottom line.

What about those, myself included, that want to work on both. As a member of the Documentation, Distribution and Marketing projects I feel that I can still provide help. The two communities are not mutually exclusive. Work on documentation will benefit all users. I can mail one version just as well as the other, based on what is requested. If trying to convince someone that Open Source and Open Format is the way to go then all still benefit.

Is TDF wish to leave OOo behind? Seems so, after all, the community made OOo
big (staroffice disappeared from many people's mind). However as for much of
the TDF community now growing, we have been very slow developing the
infrastructure to receive all of the rest of the projects. So for example,
where will the documentation project go, or the distribution project go?
Still uncertain about those issues, I guess they will go with time. Then is
3.3 on OOo which some people will remain until the launch of that version.

I have some concerns about the prior planning on the whole thing but will wait and see. The documentation project's main site is on an Oracle server, I believe, but the actual work is done on an non-Oracle server so will not be effected. The distribution project I am not sure of. The mailing list is on Oracle server but the mirrors are all over, not sure who runs the mirror brain.
