* Why the dual Licence and what does the MPL offer that the LGPLv3+ does
We have added MPL because it is considered to be better suited for
corporate implementations, as it allows a more flexible integration into
proprietary environments (while preserving is copyleft nature). For
instance, MPL would allow LibreOffice to be in the Apple Store, while
LGPLv3 would not.
LGPLv3 is the original OpenOffice license, inherited from the code base,
and cannot be modified.
* Our download page states the following in the footer: "This does not
include the source code of LibreOffice, which is licensed under the GNU
Lesser General Public License (LGPLv3)." Should this be updated?
In due time, once we will have re-licensed the entire code base.
* I imagine that the first part of the footer: "Copyright information:

No, it doesn't.
