I think you did fine, Shane, well done. I will observe that The Register
also considered the comment about LibreOffice to be "pointed".
Cross-community comments like that need to be made with extraordinary care.

I think that would be a risky move. LibreOffice is not downstream from AOOo,
but rather both projects share common ancestral code from StarOffice. I
believe for either project to imply it is the "leader" or "owner" of the
StarOffice legacy community would be divisive rather than uniting.
