This is not an Oracle issue. Rather, it's a longstanding OpenOffice.org policy 
not to permit the use of our resources for the advocacy of other projects or 
interests. In the past, we have acted as I did now. The issue at stake is not 
an us vs. them thing. It's rather, as I mentioned, an effort to ensure that 
users and contributors are clear as to what they are working on and for. Given 
the prominence of Charles in the matter, my action here is to be expected, as 
he is a founding member, I believe, of LibreOffice and the Document Foundation.
