I think successor is a very strong word to refer to someone who still has:
/6 October 2021:/
Announcing Apache OpenOffice 4.1.11 <> (1)

There are still minor patch updates, but no new features since Apache OpenOffice's last major release, 4.1, back in April 2014. Since then, virtually all development has been on LibreOffice (17,443 code commits last year in LO, vs 429 in AOO). LibreOffice has .docx/.xlsx export, extra security options and many other things that AOO is missing, that users find extremely useful.

So on that basis, with virtually all development happening in LO since 2014, I think it's fair to call it a successor project to the codebase.
