Sorry, maybe not the outdated expression is a good expression but
someting similar.
AOO has 13598 commits from 2011 (including webpage changes) and LO has
aprox 100000 commits in same time.
I know that only the commit number not equal with the code quality, but
represent progress in code quality too.

You are right, if the new features means only new bugs. But some
features is necessary for daily work. And many features is very useful
and for many people is required:
