By Open Office not being developed I meant not being developed by
Oracle. :-) Yes, Apache
foundation was given the Open Office code but it was my understanding
that the work being
put in by Document Foundation / Apache will not see any updates to what
was once called
Open Office. It seems any work going forward will be on Libre Office
