The history of the split is realy complicate, and you will have two 
different storries as minimum. One from the Community and 
one from the LibO Community.

would have not happened.
Maybe, but not sure. A OOo has nothing to do with LibO directly. A OOo 
was happend because Oracle will step back from the project, and OOo need 
a new home. The reason why Oracle step back knows Oracle only. My 
meanign is cause the failure of ther Commercial products (Oracle Open 
Office and Cloud Office)

TDF and LibO has a complietly different development strategie to Same people don't like me don't think that this is a 
goot choice vor a project like that. Time will tell who winns.
