Subject Re: OOO and LibreOffice.

To date the LibreOffice crew has taken the effort to merge in changes 
from the OOo code line, for each release.
The most obvious and best way to collaborate in the future is to write 
good code, and make it worth their while to integrate it into LO.
The more compelling the development effort at Apache, the more likely it 
is reused by LO.
This also leads to the situation where they have an interest in pushing 
changes into the AOOo code line, to simplify their future merges.
