Well, it remains the fact that "OpenOffice moribund" is false.
The primary sources cited in the article (all of which are clearly
- A message from Juergen saying that he won't be Release Manager for
4.1.2; release managers are appointed per-release, so this is not
relevant to the health of the project (actually Juergen's mail is very
well-written, and very hard to misinterpret if one read carefully)
- A message from Kay saying that we had not found a new volunteer for
Release Manager yet; this is obsolete as we have now had a Release
Manager (me) for several weeks, but no account is given of this.
- My January 2015 report to Board. I'm sure I never wrote that
OpenOffice is moribund or anything similar. I announced my resignation
in that report, but I resigned as I had been 2 years in the role, just
like Dennis plans to stay one year and then resign.
shipping code is more important than Wikipedia anyway, right?
Yes, but it is also important that users and potential users are not
So, what can I do to help with 4.1.2?
I like your approach! Are you looking for coder or non-coder tasks? I
suggest that you seek inspiration at

you need more details just open a "What can I do to help with 4.1.2?"
discussion and I'll be happy to give more details.
In the meantime I could go to Wikipedia, write that Johnny Depp is
moribund and provide as source a blog post by a fan who complains that
she hasn't seen Johnny as handsome as usual in his last public
appearance... but I'll spend my time on more productive activities
instead. I understand Dennis' point that discussing actions of one
individual on Wikipedia is off-topic on this list, but still I wanted to
provide some feedback on how messages sent to this list are misused.
