Ellison's Oracle washes hands of OpenOffice

Friday's news is a massive turnaround by a company that just seven months
ago refused to relinquish power over the OpenOffice project that it
inherited from Sun Microsystems.


Why should The Document Foundation make a statement about what Oracle does? Nothing in this or other articles has indicated that Oracle will give up the copyright to the name to anyone else. I do not see them giving the copyright to TDF. If they do then that would be reason for TDF to comment.

My 2cents.
