I think most readers here are aware about Rob Weir being one of chairs of ODF TC which must not use his position to abuse his authority for something else. The dislike of what you called "Rob haters" is mainly due to his hostility towards LibreOffice.

Indeed.

I a fan of his work for the ODF TC, but I really dislike his attitude regarding anything LibreOffice/AOO. In fact I dislike it so much that I do not want to have anything to do with AOO at all.

Side note, purely personal opinion :

I remember - perhaps erroneously, but I was following the mailing lists - that it was the rejection by Oracle of the then "experimental-tree" initiative and its members that initiated the fork, and not as it was implied many times by rcweir a malicious intent to dismember the OO.o project. After that, I see almost anything AOO says as lies. It's a gut reaction, without any rational thinking behind it, but it's still there.

Well, Rob certainly leapt to correct you here...

Certainly AOO is dying, concretely of rcweir poisoning. What I'm not sure is if this is intentional or not. Also a personal opinion.

Ignoring name changes, LO actually goes a lot further back than that.

Back in the Sun days, Go-OO was a set of patches that was merged with OpenOffice. I'm not sure at what point LO actually forked - I think it was after the Oracle acquisition of Sun, but the Go-OO patches simply absorbed the OO codebase officially into its tree and renamed itself LO.

In other words, LO is a lot older than its superficial history suggests.

Cheers,
Wol
