A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
This may have changed, but for OpenOffice to benefit from this, then Lotus Symphony must actually include some features and functionality that is considered quite desirable.
It is on!

Either way I doubt there is much to worry about. I just don't see the momentum in OO. IBM is going to throw over the fence some code but they aren't committing to keep contributing.

First of all, *most* office suites were rubbished in the late 90s / early 2000s because they weren't Microsoft Office. And if you're talking Symphony of the early 90s or the 80s, surely it evolved a lot after that?
Secondly, IBM Lotus Symphony is not Lotus Symphony. I don't know the details, but from what I can make out, IBM killed the original Lotus Symphony, and replaced it with their own version of OOwriter called Lotus Symphony.
