Hi Marc, all

As for myself, not having had the experience of working on the OOo
project, nor experience with Apache licensing projects, I think the
LibreOffice community is here to stay and I will be here to participate
for as long as I can. The direction we, as a community, are heading,
fits nicely with my values in participating in a meritocratic
organisation, as well, the LGPL and Creative Commons licences seem a
great fit for the code and our contributed materials.
There is one point important to mention in this situation:
As far as I know, Apache community is a community of developers.
Their meritocratic processes rely on code contribution.
There is no Apache project I know of that contains as many and as important
non-developers as our community.
Rob Weir (IBM) already posted his idea of splitting the community in developers
and non-coders, having the developer community as part of the Apache foundation
and the other "supporting" community members outside the foundation .
