Well, I'm not sure where you heard that OO won't be developed further, 
but the Apache foundation may have something to say about that :)

Right now the plan is that we are going to keep building and hosting 
PBIs of each, and let users ultimately pick a winner. Both will be 
available in the AppCafe for download and use, so its really a non-issue 
to me. The only thing of concern is which to include on the install DVD, 
but I've yet to get to the point of putting PBIs on the install media, 
and depending upon space limitations it may be a non-issue anyway.
