Fair 'nuff. I will say that I completely disagree with what you said prior to this particular thing and then I'll end it too. :)
> Anyone have questions on Symphony?
Sure. Why now instead of back when it was at Sun?
Will this just be a code drop, or will you continue to work closely to get it integrated into AOO?
Will you be willing to help the LO group integrate it as well?
Do you have a reply to Michael Meeks' posting on this (http://people.gnome.org/~michael/blog/2012-05-17-symphony...)?
Lotus Symphony code for OpenOffice coming soon

Again, you make the fallacy of assuming there was a positive decision not to do that rather than simply the lack of a positive decision to do that,
>Will this just be a code drop, or will you continue to work closely to get it integrated into AOO?
What happens to the code is a community decision, not something IBM unilaterally decides. My preference is certainly that we combine the best improvements of Symphony with the great work already ongoing with Apache OpenOffice. There are several technical approaches and ways of doing this. That will be decided among the Committers in the project.
>Will you be willing to help the LO group integrate it as well?
I look forward to receiving requests for help from LO.
>Do you have a reply to Michael Meeks' posting on this
His blog does not seem to allow replies. Regardless, I don't see anything new in his post. He is mainly complaining about past event, right?
