thanks for the feedback!

I too share the view that mentioning StarOffice will unnecessarily
complicate things, so we should leave it out.

Should there also be mention of the type of licence we have adopted --
opensource copy-left -- . Do we need to define ourselves from the
version of the ASF opensource licence? This may be important for people
who are looking into what is the difference between the TDF/LibreOffice
and ASF versions of their office suite. IMO, I think we need to make
this clear and also link our licence to the appropriate full description
on the FSF site.

I'd be careful here. Long-term, TDF might not only be about LibreOffice,
so I would not focus too much on one specific license, who knows what

I'll like to repeat Christoph's latest proposal - everyone agrees we can
adopt this?

The Document Foundation has the mission of facilitating the evolution of
the LibreOffice Community into a new, open, independent, and
meritocratic organization over the next few months. An independent
foundation is a better reflection of the values of our contributors,
users and supporters, and will enable a more effective, efficient and
transparent community. TDF will protect past investments by building on
the achievements of the first decade with, will encourage
wide participation within the community, and will co-ordinate activity
across the community.
