In general I avoid commenting threads like this, as in my
POV the licensing differences are not surmountable..

I don't see much hope in that request, especially since
someone already mentioned the word "veto" if it ever

What I think could be done is to work out some mechanism
where LibreOffice developers can tag their commits as AL,
and that we can take those changes without anyone signing
an ICLA, but by the time that is arranged I doubt most of
the LO patches may apply cleanly, and for the time being
we do have a LOT to do to make the incubation successful.
