[$] What’s next for Apache OpenOffice

Post Syndicated from corbet original http://lwn.net/Articles/699755/rss

Concerns about the viability of the Apache OpenOffice (AOO) project are not
new; they had been in the air for a while by the time LWN looked at the project’s development activity
in early 2015. Since then, though, the worries have grown more pronounced,
especially after AOO’s recent failure to produce a release with an important
security fix nearly one year after being notified of the vulnerability.
The result is an
internal discussion on whether the project should be “retired,” or whether
it will find a way to turn its fortunes around.
