I can't remember a person Peter G. but I participated in the workshop
(as reported last year) and helped with the spec and use cases. The
project in general is a very good idea and I hope that they get many
quotes from interested developers, companies, ...
Nevertheless is the spec not detailed enough from my perspective and I
have reported my feedback but it is not directly reflected. Only some
use-cases are dropped because no detail information was provided or it
is already implemented in AOO and can be consumed by LO (probably
already is consumed).

The first project was sub-optimal regarding the excat definition of how
the work have to be delivered. In the end the patches were at least
under ALv2 as well but we were not able to integrate them easy
(incomplete or not applicable) and not all patches are integrated. Keep
in mind that this work means man power and the work was already paid.
Even the implementation was not complete and we have done much more than
only tweaking the available patch.

Nevertheless have we worked on a better definition of how the work have
to be delivered in this new project to ensure that both AOO and LO
benefit from the improvements. Well LO benefits anyway from the work we
do for AOO but that is of course a different story.
