    I ignore nothing.
    Your attempt to spin the story against Apache is just pathetic.
    Yes, the code was proprietary for a while during a transition period but isn't it a fact that TODAY – after Apache's legal team checked the code file by file – that it's now under Apache License for everyone as part of OO 4.0, including LibreOffice?
    Do you deny that fact?

    Why three? I already showed two. You OTOH could just point at a short transition period of which it was clear from the beginning that it was a transition period – a transition period long over, ever since the code landed in OpenOffice 4.0's SVN development branch.
    TDF people are pretty blunt about their hostility when they feel to talk in private, such as their own mailing lists. There it's not subtle hostility like releasing LO 4.0 ahead of OO 4.0 with zero new features that justify a major revision, just to beat OO at version numbering…

    Oh, and just to make it clear again: I'm not a OO/Apache fanboy. I still think that KDE's Calligra has the superior technology and that both OO's and LO's technology is rotting meat. A OO/Apache fanboy would never say that.
    I'm merely an outside observer who's interested to see how both projects develop and who occasionally crawls through both projects' mailing list archives to inform himself.

    If it's such a success, then how come the transition was announced years ago and they still haven't completed it?
    Furthermore, why are they undermining their own effort by implimenting Java components such as the sidebar from Lotus Symphony?

    The new sidebar is not implemented in Java, it is extended from the old sidebar from impress by IBM for Symphony (clearly stated in http://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Sidebar). Also Symphony code that was written in Java was not donated to Apache (clearly stated in http://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Symphony).

    As usual you are making things up.

    The sidebar is not written in Java.
