I don't really know whether spam attacks are made to deliberately damage 
this project or just to spam, but it's simpler to believe they are just 

What is interesting/amusing is that I noticed a consistent pattern of 
spam registrations in the OpenOffice and LibreOffice wikis over the last 
weeks (i.e., the same extremely long username being registered on one 
wiki and, just seconds/minutes later, on the other one).

So at least the two projects have common spammers! Now it would be 
really nice to cooperate on fighting spam, since this just involves good 
will and common sense and it does not interfere with licenses, 
contributor agreements, corporate interests...
