Yes, unfortunately, the relevant criticism of LO is correct.

But one thing should be quite clear:
The solution is not to join LO, but the solution is: we need to improve ourselves.

Peter has said a lot about what I find right.

Likewise, I believe that it is necessary to use time to clarify these things, even if this
time is initially missing for the programming.
The point is, the better structures will improve our efficiency in the long run.

and one more note:
Our PMC is a PMC of an Apache project and it must be loyal to the ASF and the OpenOffice project.
If, however, there are single points that are contentious, then the PMC must first represent
the interests of OpenOffice.
