But weren't there supposed to be many changes all over the LibreOffice source to clean up, remove dead code, translate German comments, etc...? These would have to be somehow patched or redone for the Apache OpenOffice versions of the source files, and this is something that needs programming skills, not just legal. Especially for those Apache OO versions of source files that have their own set of changes, compared to the common starting point.
I fear this idea will set LO development back by years. Just don't do it!
